Carefully planned clinical laboratory experiences are an integral part of all nursing courses and encompass caring for all age groups in various patient care settings. Affiliated health care facilities in central and east central Ohio provide clinical experiences for students under the supervision of expert nursing faculty.
COTC Nursing Graduates may choose to work in a variety of settings, such as:

The U.S. Department of Labor states that job opportunities for RNs in all specialties are expected to be excellent. The current healthcare environment is shifting, resulting in a shortage of RNs in many areas. This means the associate degree RN is needed to help fill the RN vacancies. In fact, projections indicate that registered nurses will create the second largest number of new jobs among all occupations over the next several years. Thousands of job openings also will result from the need to replace experienced nurses who leave the occupation, especially as the median age of the registered nurse population continues to rise.
