Clark State Community College Nursing Program Review


Formerly known as the Springfield and Clark County Technical Education Program in 1962, Clark County Technical Institute (CCTI) in 1966 and Clark Technical College in 1972, Clark State Community College (CSCC) offers degree programs and classes specifically made to meet the community’s needs.

Springfield is currently home to two different campuses and to Clark State’s Performing Arts Center.

Clark State Community College – Registered Nursing

Clark State’s Registered Nursing program has been approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing and has been accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.

Through this program, graduates will get ready to work in beginning staff-level positions for registered nurses in extended healthcare facilities, hospitals and clinics, as well as in various other healthcare facilities as part of the healthcare team.

Registered Nursing

The nursing courses at Clark State can be taken in the traditional format or in an online format. Lab sessions will all be conducted on-campus, though.

To apply for this program, students need to have a Compass reading score of at least 75, a Compass writing score of at least 70, a Compass Basic Math score of at least 47, a Compass Algebra score of at least 29, and a GPA of at least 2.0.

Registered Nursing – Evening

Evening nursing courses are also available at Clark State. However, since these courses do not allow other evening classes to be taken at the same time, students will have to complete every other required course before enrolling into the evening nursing courses.

To apply for this program, students need to have a Compass reading score of at least 75, a Compass writing score of at least 70, a Compass Basic Math score of at least 47, a Compass Algebra score of at least 29, and a GPA of at least 2.0.

Registered Nursing – LPN to RN Transition

This Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to Registered Nurse (RN) option provides a new sequence when it comes to nursing courses, wherein students can meet all of the educational needs of LPNs in order to become RNs. The course requirements are still the same as the ones in the regular RN program, though.

Other admission requirements for these clinical nursing courses would include a current Ohio LPN license, a recent practice of at least one year as an Ohio LPN, and a current professional certification as a CPR provider.

Registered Nursing – Paramedic to RN Transition

This degree has the exact same program requirements as the regular RN program, but the nursing sequences have been changed in order to meet the paramedics’ educational needs, as well.

Other admission requirements for these clinical nursing courses would include a current Ohio paramedic certification, a recent practice of at least three years as an Ohio paramedic, and a minimum grade of C for the prerequisite NUR 185 requirements.

Also, two years before entering their very first courses in clinical nursing, students have to complete the Nurse Aid Training course successfully or at least show proficiency of the skills and knowledge that is usually taught in that particular course.
