After launching a 16-month Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program in January 2017 in partnership with Orbis Education, Xavier University recently celebrated the pinning of the first cohort of program graduates.
The ABSN program addresses the current and future nursing shortage in both the state of Ohio and nationwide. Offering college graduates with non-nursing degrees the opportunity to start a nursing career, the program delivers high-quality, clinically intensive nursing education in a short amount of time through online learning, simulation lab practicals, and clinical rotations in the greater Cincinnati area.
Dr. Lisa Long, associate director of nursing, online and hybrid program at Xavier University, tells PRNewswire.com, “We offer experienced and credentialed faculty and state-of-the-art labs and simulation experiences to our students. We put all of that, as well as an emphasis on Xavier’s Jesuit, Catholic mission of care for the person, into a package that prepares students for a successful transition into nursing.”
The ABSN program was developed in partnership with Orbis Education, a leading provider of pre-licensure healthcare programs for universities. Orbis funded the development of a high-tech learning facility which includes meeting rooms and simulation labs featuring high-fidelity manikins.
