GUEST EDITORIAL: Nursing at Owens Community College

(Toledo News Now) - A hallmark program in the northwest Ohio community since 1969, the Owens Community College Registered Nursing Program remains dedicated to ensuring students receive the highest-quality nursing education.

I am pleased to share that Owens recently received official notice from the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, formally the National League Nursing Accrediting Commission, that our registered nursing program has regained program accreditation through spring of 2018.

Since 1971, Owens' Registered Nursing Program has continuously maintained full approval by the Ohio Board of Nursing, which is the highest level that a nursing education program can achieve.

Evidence of our quality has been demonstrated in our students excelling on the National Council Licensing Exam - the license required to practice nursing. During the first two quarters of 2013, 80 students passed the exam on the first attempt, resulting in a pass rate of 95.4 percent, which exceeds both the national and state passage rates.

We appreciate the unending support of the communities of northwest Ohio and look forward to serving as your community college for many years to come.

    Editorial: Bishop Thomas on agreement between ProMedica, Capital Care Network

    The recent decision of ProMedica's Board of Trustees to enter into a transfer agreement with Capital Care Network, Toledo's last remaining abortion facility, just doesn't make sense.
