Major Areas of Study: NURSING


The Nursing program at Muskingum University combines the best of Muskingum's liberal arts and sciences with a structured nursing curriculum to build a comprehensive Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) experience. Successful completion of the program will allow students to sit for the exam leading to the R.N. license. Our graduates will be prepared for professional careers and for entry into graduate programs.



The Department of Nursing reflects the mission of Muskingum University by providing quality nursing education which fosters critical thinking, positive action, ethical sensitivity and spiritual growth within the context of a caring community. Liberally educated nursing graduates are able to integrate knowledge, skills and values from the arts and sciences to provide safe quality nursing care, to act as advocates for families, groups and communities and to manage twenty-first century changes in the health care system.

Admission to the BSN Program

In its initial years, the BSN program will limit the number of students admitted based on the capacity of its core classes and the number of clinical sites available. Like many other nursing programs, Muskingum's program will admit first-year students to a pre-nursing curriculum based on high school credentials and scores on the ACT or SAT examinations. In general, an applicant should have completed a strong college prep curriculum in high school, including biology, chemistry, and math through Algebra II to be considered for admission to nursing. Because the capacity of the pre-nursing program is limited, some students who are eligible for admission to the University may not be admitted to pre-nursing as first-year students. (For more on application and admission to the University, visit Applying for Admission.)
