At Otterbein University, instruction is not just in a classroom. You will be getting hands-on clinical experience from your first term. Small clinical groups provide students with personalized attention and the supportive environment you need to be successful from faculty who are nationally certified experts in their field. Otterbein's location in Westerville, Ohio, just 15 minutes from the State's capital, Columbus, provides access to two major health care systems, OhioHealth and Mount Carmel, as well as countless diverse health care facilities and agencies in regional Ohio.
Otterbein nursing skills lab offers unique learning experiences for students to promote critical thinking skills and clinical skills. Our large, state of the art labs offer after-hours practice time with the opportunity to utilize human patient simulators without faculty presence. New simulation equipment has been developed and designed by the nursing lab in collaboration with edgeThingz. This equipment increases realism and fidelity in simulation.
Classes are taught in the classroom during daytime hours on a semester calendar. Summers are scheduled off to allow for mission trips and student nurses association and nursing honor society activities. The baccalaureate degree program at Otterbein University is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education Accreditation (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).
