Owens establishes separate School of Nursing

PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP, OH (WTOL) – Owens Community College and the Department of Nursing announced Wednesday the establishment of a new School of Nursing. The Department of Nursing, formerly under the School of Health Sciences, will now be organized into a separate school.

Owens administrators say the establishment of a separate school will provide greater support and expanded educational resources for the various academic nursing programs.


Tanieya Lewis will have an update on the Owens accreditation investigation on News 11 at 5:30 today.


Dawn Wetmore of Perrysburg has been named to serve as the new dean of the School of Nursing. Her responsibilities will include providing administrative leadership for all instructional programs and activities on both the Toledo-area and Findlay-area campuses.

Her new position will also entail providing guidance in the development and implementation of new academic curricula, directing the on-going evaluation of the school’s courses and providing assessment of student learning, as well as overseeing budget planning and management, articulation and transfer agreements, and the development of community partnerships. Among the academic areas comprising the new school are the registered nursing, licensed practical nursing, state tested nurse assistant and the licensed practical nursing to registered nursing programs.
