ODU Partnership with Mount Carmel College of Nursing Creates Pathway to MBA, MSHA Degrees
Ohio Dominican University (ODU) has partnered with Mount Carmel College of Nursing (MCCN) to offer MCCN alumni a direct pathway toward expanding and enhancing their professional credentials at ODU.
This agreement allows alumni of MCCN’s master of science programs to transfer up to 25% of their coursework to Ohio Dominican as they enroll in ODU’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) or Master of Science in Healthcare Administration (MSHA) programs. Accepting previously completed coursework will allow students to save time and money as they work toward another master’s degree. In addition, eligible students who meet certain academic requirements will be guaranteed admission to ODU following the completion of their MCCN degree, and they will not be required to complete an entrance exam.
MCCN graduates who enroll at ODU through this partnership may choose to pursue their MBA or MSHA online, on campus, or a combination of both formats, giving them the flexibility of completing their degree around their schedule.
The agreement expands upon an existing partnership with MCCN that allows ODU students to pursue a nursing degree following their undergraduate studies at Ohio Dominican.
“This partnership gives Mount Carmel College of Nursing students who aspire for administrative and leadership roles within healthcare organizations a clear and concise pathway to the courses and degrees they need to help them achieve their professional goals,” said Manuel Martinez, Ph.D., ODU’s acting vice president for Academic Affairs. “This is a wonderful opportunity for two outstanding, Catholic-based institutions to collaborate in creating a unique academic partnership that benefits students who aspire to serve in this important field.”
“Providing professional registered nurses with the critical leadership and administrative competencies in today's ever-evolving healthcare environment is essential,” said Kathleen Williamson, Ph.D., MSN, MCCN’s academic dean. “This dynamic partnership with ODU, rich with shared mission, vision and values, affords our alumni an outstanding, flexible pathway to pursue their professional goals.”
