Path2BSN Community College Option
Welcome to your Path2BSN!
So, you want to become a nurse? We can show you how to continue your academic journey by helping you meet important deadlines and select the right classes.
Most healthcare organizations require nurses to have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing – a BSN. The path to achieving a BSN from The Ohio State University starts with an associate degree in nursing at your community college. You will be placed on a pathway to complete Ohio State’s online program and graduate a Buckeye with your BSN from Ohio State.
Let us be your career guides.
We can show you how by helping you meet important deadlines and select the right classes.
Ohio State has agreements with seven Central Ohio community colleges. These plans of study list all of the courses from the community colleges and Ohio State. Following the right plan allows you to start courses from Ohio State’s bachelor’s program before finishing your associate degree. You can then seamlessly progress to the online Ohio State Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.
You will need a 3.2 cumulative undergraduate GPA to be considered for the Path2BSN pathway. A 2.75 GPA must be maintained while a Path2BSN student.
