Ohio/Kentucky County Restrictions for Adult-Gerontological Primary Care and FNP MSN Distance Learning Programs
The University of Cincinnati College of Nursing will be restricting admission applications for local students in two of our MSN Distance Learning specialty programs, Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AGPC-DL) and Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP-DL). Effective March 1, 2015, we will no longer accept distance learning admission applications for the 2015 Summer term and beyond in FNP and AGPC from the following counties: Hamilton, Butler, Warren, Clermont in Ohio and Boone, Kenton, and Campbell in Kentucky. The decision to restrict admissions was in response to increased local competition for preceptors and viable regional clinical sites in primary care. Students who reside in the above counties are encouraged to apply to our onsite programs. Please refer to our website for additional information related to residential program opportunities and respective application deadlines at http://nursing.uc.edu/academic_programs.html.
