The college hired a new faculty member for the program and is providing a new, eight-bed laboratory with manikins that can be used as part of simulations, according to the school. The lab can accommodate 20 students and Grandview Hospital in Columbus donated the eight laboratory beds

Clark State has already selected its first group of students for the program at its satellite location, according to the school. Prospective students can submit applications for the fall 2019 semester from December through February.

The community college also offers programs in paramedic to RN, Practical Nursing and Medical Assisting at the Beavercreek building, according to Clark State.

The registered nursing program has long been “an in-demand major” at the Beavercreek location, said Gwen Stevens, director of nursing programs for Clark State. Wright State University, which is just a mile or so away from Clark State’s Greene Center, offers a bachelor’s of science nursing degree.

“For several years, Registered Nursing has been the number one major at the Greene Center at the Beavercreek campus,” Stevens said in a prepared statement. “Students have been able to complete the general education requirements at the Greene Center but would take classes in Springfield once accepted into the nursing program.
