Ohio University has an approved School Nurse Certificate program. The required courses are a combination of courses from nursing, psychology, education, child and family services, and health. Many of the courses are delivered online, but some require attendance in a classroom. Students who are completing the RN-to-BSN program may take these courses while working on the BSN degree.
