Bachelor of Science in Nursing

Our BSN program at Miami balances a classic liberal arts education with professional nursing courses and provides a pathway for nursing leadership roles and entry into the master's program. Our BSN program is offered at both the Oxford and Hamilton campuses. You'll explore health promotion, prevention, restoration, and maintenance for individuals and communities. Clinical study adds a hands-on, real-life experience to round out classroom and laboratory work.

Doctor of Nursing Practice

Launching in fall 2024, Miami's first doctoral nursing program prepares candidates for future careers in organizational/systems leadership roles. Designed to segue seamlessly from our MSN, the DNP requires traditional classwork—all conducted via an online format—as well as practicum courses. The practicum serves as a comprehensive, systematic assessment of complex organizational environments with a focus on quality improvement and quality outcomes, and coincides with specialty electives and additional clinical work.

Miami University Excellence

In Nursing Programs

Accreditation by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education acknowledges the outstanding quality in Miami's BSN program. Not only are job placement and employers' evaluations of nursing graduates excellent, but Miami nursing graduates also have a high pass rate on the state licensure examination.

Our new graduate programs will seek accreditation from the CCNE as well. Following the association's accreditation process, both programs are anticipated to have full approval applied to the first graduating class. Anticipated dates for full accreditation are Fall 2023 for the MSN and Fall 2025 for our doctoral program.

In Faculty

Miami's nursing faculty are highly qualified both academically and clinically. All hold either master of science or doctoral degrees and enhance their teaching effectiveness by maintaining clinical practice, attending educational seminars, and presenting their scholarly work and research. Learn more about our faculty and staff.

In Resources

Our Nursing Resource Centers (NRCs) are designed for learning essential nursing skills using low-fidelity manikins, audiovisual materials, and other medical equipment. Staffed by Master's-prepared directors and student employees, the NRCs also feature high-fidelity simulation manikins to add greater depth to student learning by simulating patient experiences.

Miami University's Nursing Simulation Education Center utilizes innovative learning to bridge the gap between theory and clinical education. High-fidelity manikins and/or standardized patient actors are used to enhance nursing assessment and clinical judgment skills by simulating diverse nursing care scenarios
