One Plus One Nursing Education Program

The OMCC One Plus One Nursing Education program is approved by Ohio Board of Nursing. Students will be eligible to take the NCLEX-PN examination after completing the first 40-week component of training. Students may also choose to transition into the second year of the program, which builds upon the knowledge acquired during the first part of the curriculum. Upon successful completion of second year of training, graduates will be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN examination to become licensed as Registered Nurses.

The advanced placement option allows current Licensed Practical Nurses who graduated from other programs to continue training and become eligible to take the NCLEX-RN examination. In this case, these students are required to obtain IV certification prior to enrollment to meet the requirements of the OMCC One Plus One Nursing Education program.

OMCC One Plus One Nursing Education program has the advantage of allowing the student to sit for the NCLEX-PN exam after just one year of education. This flexibility allows students to pick the best education options tailored to their own career goals and aspirations.

Career Description

OMCC One Plus One Nursing Education program prepares students to respond to the needs of patients suffering from illness or injury, and to provide care and cater to the needs of patients in a variety of settings, including operating rooms, ambulatory care, intensive care, physicians offices, health care clinics, or specialized practices. If you are an active Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and willing to pursue higher level of professional education, this program is the right choice to meet your personal goal.

Graduates will receive a diploma upon program completion and become eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination, or NCLEX-RN. NCLEX-RN is required in order to obtain licensure as a registered nurse. It is a computer-based exam and varies in length, covering four major Client Needs categories: safe and effective care environment, health promotion and maintenance, psychosocial integrity, and physiological integrity.

Career Description

Registered nurses (RNs), regardless of specialty or work setting, treat patients, educate patients and the public about various medical conditions, and provide advice and emotional support to patients' family members. RNs record patients' medical histories and symptoms, help perform diagnostic tests and analyze results, operate medical machinery, administer treatment and medications, and help with patient follow-up and rehabilitation.

RNs teach patients and their families how to manage their illnesses or injuries, explaining post-treatment home care needs; diet, nutrition, and exercise programs; and self-administration of medication and physical therapy. Some RNs may work to promote general health by educating the public on warning signs and symptoms of disease. RNs also might run general health screening or immunization clinics, blood drives, and public seminars on various conditions.

When caring for patients, RNs establish a care plan or contribute to an existing plan. Plans may include numerous activities, such as administering medication, including careful checking of dosages and avoiding interactions; starting, maintaining, and discontinuing intravenous (IV) lines for fluid, medication, blood, and blood products; administering therapies and treatments; observing the patient and recording those observations; and consulting with physicians and other healthcare clinicians. Some RNs provide direction to licensed practical nurses and nursing aides regarding patient care.

Career Outlook

According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall job opportunities are expected to be excellent for registered nurses. The need for nursing faculty will only increase as many current registered nurses are near retirement. Despite the slower employment growth in hospitals, job opportunities should still be excellent because of the relatively high turnover of hospital nurses. To attract and retain qualified nurses, hospitals may offer signing bonuses, family-friendly work schedules, or subsidized training.

All four advanced practice specialties - clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, and nurse anesthetists - will be in high demand, particularly in medically underserved areas such as inner cities and rural areas. Relative to physicians, these RNs increasingly serve as lower-cost primary care providers.
