Otterbein's nursing students find real world experience in the program

The Otterbein Nursing Department offers opportunities for students to work in the real world at hospitals or abroad

Otterbein University offers over 70 majors and minors to students, the largest program offered is nursing. Nursing is also the largest graduate department among the five programs currently offered. Otterbein nursing provides students with clinical experiences along with opportunities to study abroad. 

 “Growing up, my mom was and still is a nurse. I loved hearing stories about her patients," said junior Jaidyn Kuiken. "After being a part of medical clinics the deal was sealed.” 

There are currently 14 nursing faculty and staff members, all of whom are committed to their students. The connection between students and faculty has prepared students to have a high pass rate. 

“The staff at Otterbein is helpful, they provide their students with extra resources and an open line of communication,” said sophomore, Megan Mathers. With Otterbein being a small campus of under 3,000 students, it is easy for professors to help when needed. 

As a nursing major at Otterbein, there are a lot of opportunities to get real world experiences at hospitals nearby. These hospitals include OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, OhioHealth Grant Medical Center and many more. These are all located in Columbus which is only a 20-minute drive from campus. 

Many graduates are employed in a variety of different healthcare systems including primary care, home care, mental health and community health. The nursing department has helped prepare students for lifelong experiences in healthcare.
