Trinity Health System School of Nursing (THSSN)

Originally called the Ohio Valley Hospital School of Nursing, Trinity Health System’s School of Nursing was founded in 1912. It is currently operated and owned by a Catholic organization called the Franciscan Service Corporation.

This program has been accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC), has been certified by the Ohio Board of Regents, and has been approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing and the Ohio Department of Education for Veterans’ Administration Benefits.

Registered Nursing (RN) Program

To apply, students will need to submit a completed application form along with their high school and college transcripts if applicable. Sometimes, references and personal interviews might be required, as well.

Students will also need to have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75, a minimum grade of C on all required college courses, a minimum score of 18 on the ACT and a minimum score of 750 on the SAT. Aside from that, they will also need to take the HESI Exam at the Trinity Health System School and get a minimum score of 75% on it in order to apply.

Students who have already complete a four-year college degree in the last five years, though, will no longer have to submit any standardized test scores to apply.

Advanced Placement – Licensed Practical Nurse to Registered Nurse (LPN to RN)

LPNs who want to apply to this dynamic and unique program will need to have a valid LPN license and the proper credentials to prescribe medications. Surgical and medical experience would be preferable,a s well.

To apply, students will also need to have a minimum grade of C in all of the practical nursing courses.

There are no required pre-admission tests for this particular program.

Trinity Health System’s School of Nursing will give credit to students’ previous nursing education through the escrow-bypass advanced placement method.

Readmission Requirements

Students who were once in the Trinity Health System nursing program but have voluntarily or involuntarily left and want to be readmitted will need to meet the same curriculum requirements as everybody else. The Faculty Organization will then review and consider the requests and base their decisions on the current availability of space in the program and the students’ personal evaluations.

Some of the aspects that the Faculty might review would include the student’s previous academic files, the student’s reason for leaving, the amount of time that the student has been gone, the student’s past theory performances,, the student’s standardized and clinical test results, the amount of times that the student was placed on probation if ever, the amount of times the student had to repeat any final exams, and the student’s attendance while he attended the program.
