Dear Interested Applicant:

Thank you for considering our RN diploma program. We are no longer accepting applications for our 2017 program year, and are looking ahead toward enrollment for our August 2018/Fall start. We appreciate your interest and wanted to advise you of acceptance, under the following two conditions:

OVH Full Tuition Scholarships

Our School of Nursing offers this institutional scholarship in addition to federal and state programs. Scholarships will be granted to a limited number of eligible applicants that meet the following conditions:

  • You must be a U.S. Citizen.
  • You must achieve an Adjusted Individual Score of 85% or higher on the ATI TEAS exam to be considered.
  • You must achieve an Adjusted Individual Score of 50% or higher on the ATI Critical Thinking exam to be considered.
  • While in the program, you must complete 50 volunteer hours.
  • You must commit to working at Ohio Valley Hospital as a RN on a nursing unit for a minimum of 3 years after graduation.

Full tuition scholarships are awarded on a per-term basis/per academic year. Students with a desire to attend our school under this scholarship program should inform the school immediately.

Scholarships are awarded on a first come/ first served basis.

Self-Payers

Applicants who are not interested in our Full-Tuition scholarship or may not meet our scholarship criteria may also be accepted. Eligibility for this criteria is as follows:

  • You must be a U.S. Citizen or an eligible non-citizen.
  • You must achieve an Adjusted Individual Score of 65% or higher on the ATI TEAS exam to be considered.
  • You must achieve an Adjusted Individual Score of 50% or higher on the ATI Critical Thinking exam to be considered.
  • While enrolled in our program, you must complete 10 volunteer hours.

Self-paying students have no work commitment to Ohio Valley Hospital. After graduation, you are able to work as a RN anywhere within the state of Pennsylvania or abroad (pending successful passing of the NCLEX board examination).

All applicants must have successfully completed the required prerequisite coursework of Algebra, Chemistry with Lab and Biology with Lab with a grade of (C or better).

Pre-Entrance exam scores are a main indicator of acceptance, however they are NOT the only criteria used to evaluate an applicant’s potential. Applicants must meet ALL criteria as outlined in the informational packet for determining eligibility and acceptance.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

The Ohio Valley Hospital School of Nursing Admissions Office
