One Plus One Associate of Applied Science in Nursing Program

The OMCC One Plus One Associate of Applied Science in Nursing 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

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 US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of registered nurses is projected to grow 7 percent from 2019 to 2029, faster than the average for all occupations.

Demand for healthcare services will increase because of the aging population, given that older people typically have more medical problems than younger people. Nurses also will be needed to educate and care for patients with chronic conditions, such as arthritis, dementia, diabetes, and obesity.

The financial pressure on hospitals to discharge patients as soon as possible may result in more people being admitted to long-term care facilities and outpatient care centers and in greater need for healthcare at home. Job growth is expected in facilities that provide long-term rehabilitation for stroke and head injury patients and in facilities that treat people with Alzheimer's disease. In addition, because many older people prefer to be treated at home or in residential care facilities, registered nurses will be in demand in those settings.

Growth is also expected to be faster than average in outpatient care centers, where patients do not stay overnight, such as those that provide same-day chemotherapy, rehabilitation, and surgery. In addition, a large number of procedures, including sophisticated procedures previously done only in hospitals, are now done in ambulatory care settings and physicians' offices.
