Prospective registered nurses in Ohio have four different types of prelicensure programs from which to choose, and the associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) is definitely one of the most popular. Over sixty such programs are available at universities and colleges throughout the state, both public and private. All ADN programs prepare students to pass the NCLEX-RN national licensure examination upon completion.

On their road to recovery, patients need more than medication – they also need steady, compassionate hands to care for them at their bedsides and to administer the medical procedures they need. These are roles fulfilled by licensed practical nurses (LPNs). Licensed practical nurses not only provide direct care to patients but also administer some medications and medical procedures.

Ohio offers a plethora of vocational colleges for prospective students interested in the nursing field. Vocational nursing courses are a great fit for students interested in hands-on work and seeking a rapid path to nursing employment.
