NANCY SCHROEDER BSN '06

I loved every minute of my ONU experience, even the challenging parts! Due to the small class size, there was such a sense of community in my class. The professors were patient, helpful and encouraging.

For many years, Nancy Schroeder had thought about pursuing her BSN. When she discovered that ONU offered a program at her workplace, she decided to go for it. She says the spirit of the learning community, the collaborations with fellow nurses and the new professional connections she made were highlights of ONU’s RN-BSN program. After graduation, she became a part-time adjunct professor in ONU’s nursing department while she attained a master’s degree. She then became a full-time faculty member, and she’s currently pursuing a doctorate of nursing at the University of Cincinnati. “ONU’s RN-BSN program was a life-changing experience for me,” she says.
