The need for nurses will only increase as Ohio’s population ages and the labor force declines”

— Dr. Suzanne Smith, DNP, MSN, RN, Dean of Nursing

The state of Ohio is facing a nursing shortage and indicators predict the demand for new nurses will continue to increase. It is estimated that there are nearly 9,000 open positions for registered nurses in Ohio according to the state Office of Workforce Transformation. As many nurses age out of the profession, not enough nursing students are graduating to handle the need for medical care. The demand for more nurses in Ohio is an excellent opportunity for future Nursing graduates.

The college is accepting enrollments for its first cohort, with classes beginning February 27th, 2023.

“Nurses are essential to our healthcare system, and the need will only increase as Ohio’s population ages and the labor force declines,” said Dr. Suzanne Smith, DNP, MSN, RN, Dean of Nursing for Arizona College of Nursing’s Cleveland Campus. “This is an exciting time to pursue a nursing career in Ohio, and we are thrilled to open our Cleveland campus. Our accredited, student-centric, BSN program will prepare students for a fulfilling nursing career.”
