    Campus-based and online nursing schools in Ohio

    A nursing student in Ohio can take several paths to a career. An associate degree in nursing may be satisfactory for LVNs, LPNs or RNs, but a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree is often required for those who wish to advance in the field or move on to a more specialized nursing position.
