Accredited Program

The BSN program at Ohio Northern University is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), 655 K Street NW, Suite 750, Washington, D.C., 20001, phone 202-887-6791. 

To receive this distinction, our program met four accreditation standards. The standards include three program quality areas: mission and governance, institutional commitment and resources, and curriculum and teaching learning practices. The fourth is a measure of program effectiveness in student performance and faculty accomplishments.

CCNE is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a national accreditation agency. The accreditation process is designed to ensure the quality and integrity of baccalaureate and graduate education programs in preparing effective nurses. As a voluntary, self-regulatory process, CCNE accreditation supports and encourages continuing self-assessment by nursing education programs and the continuing growth and improvement of collegiate professional education.

The next on-site evaluation from CCNE will take place in spring 2023.

The nursing program and department received continued full approval from the Ohio Board of Nursing (OBN), 17 South High Street, Suite 660, Columbus, Ohio 43215-3466, phone 614-466-3947 on May 15, 2014. Our next onsite evaluation from OBN will take place Feb. 20-21, 2019.   

The five-year first-time NCLEX exam passage rate for Ohio Northern University nursing graduates is 96.6 percent.
