The Breen School of Nursing is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing.
The national nursing shortage has opened new doors of opportunity. Many hospitals and federal loan forgiveness programs have made a quality nursing education possible for many.
The need for educated nursing professionals in Greater Cleveland is considerable. Forecasts project that demand for RNs in Ohio will increase 24% from 2000-2020, while the supply of professionals to fill these positions will decrease by 8%.
Ursuline's Breen School of Nursing offers leadership experience as part of each student’s professional preparation. The nursing program provides an excellent foundation for the professional nurse to function as a decision maker and caregiver within and across health care systems. This is in keeping with the changing role of the professional nurse, who today combines these dual functions.
Today’s nurse works autonomously in a variety of acute care hospitals, long-term care facilities, and community-based agencies. A nurse’s role in these settings also varies. Some nurses pursue careers as practitioners, educators, administrators, clinical specialists, and consultants, while others are engaged in private practice. Especially important to women is that nursing offers professional, personal, and economic rewards, with flexible opportunities for hours and career patterns.
The Ursuline nursing program also offers a strong foundation for graduate study leading to positions as advanced practice nurses as well as positions in research, education, and administration.
The high standards set by Ursuline have taught me to set the bar high for myself.
