Ohio State University and Case Western Reserve University rank among the top 50 nursing masters’ programs in the county, according to U.S. News & World Report.

To treat a rapidly aging population, Northeast Ohio needs another 2,850 nurses by 2020, according to the Nursing Forecaster of the Center for Health Affairs, a regional hospital association.

Some of the area’s schools are looking to attract new nurses by offering financial aid if graduates work at a partnered Northeast Ohio hospital for two years post-grad.

The Institute of Medicine recommended that by 2020, 80 percent of nurses should have bachelor’s degrees. An undergraduate degree better prepares nurses to make critical decisions and to plan for patient care, according to the institute.

With more nurses now encouraged to get bachelor’s degrees, those students might look toward graduate schools as well. The average salary for a MSN is more than $80,000 -- $20,000 more than a RN, according to Nurse Journal.

About 71 percent of graduate nursing students took out student loans for their degree and 49 percent had debt between $15,000 and $54,999, according to a 2017 survey by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. About 20 percent had debt between $40,000 and $54,999.

The U.S. World & News Report ranked the schools based on a quality assessment sent out to deans at nursing schools along with factors like class size, undergraduate GPA, faculty credentials and research activity.
Ohio State University: tied at 8 overall.
Case Western Reserve University: tied at 16 overall.

You do not know what God is up to. You may feel overlooked, and nobody is giving you credit. Do not worry. God knows how to promote you out of season.
