MVNU Awarded Full Approval by the Ohio Board of Nursing

August 24, 2015 - 7:56 PM

MOUNT VERNON — Mount Vernon Nazarene University's nursing program has received full approval from the Ohio Board of Nursing (OBN). Approval is required for all nursing programs and is awarded based on a quality written report and site visit. MVNU was awarded the maximum OBN approval of five academic years.

The Ohio Board of Nursing approves pre-licensure education programs to assure programs maintain academic and clinical standards for the preparation of entry-level nurses. This approval follows MVNU's accreditation during the fall semester by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). CCNE awarded MVNU the maximum accreditation span of five full years.

"The purpose of the OBN is to assure the public is provided safe, effective care by nurses with appropriate levels of knowledge, skill, and competence," said Carol Dorough, Dean of MVNU's School of Nursing and Health Sciences. "Nursing programs must be approved by the OBN, or graduates of those programs are not eligible to take the National Licensure Exam (NCLEX-RN), the exam required for them to become licensed as registered nurses."

"The recent action by the Ohio Board of Nursing to grant us the full five-year continued approval is another confirmation of the quality of our program and the professionalism of Dr. Dorough's leadership," added Dr. Cochran, MVNU's Vice President for Academic Affairs. "The OBN accreditation process is rigorous and thorough, and the five-year approval is certainly not perfunctory. This is great news for us!"
