The college hired a new faculty member for the program and is providing a new, eight-bed laboratory with manikins that can be used as part of simulations, according to the school. The lab can accommodate 20 students and Grandview Hospital in Columbus donated the eight laboratory beds.
Clark State has already selected its first group of students for the program at its satellite location, according to the school. Prospective students can submit applications for the fall 2019 semester from December through February.

“For several years, Registered Nursing has been the number one major at the Greene Center at the Beavercreek campus,” Stevens said in a prepared statement. “Students have been able to complete the general education requirements at the Greene Center but would take classes in Springfield once accepted into the nursing program.
