Message from Dean Melnyk

This new addition will allow us to continue our vision to be the world’s leader in thinking and doing the impossible to transform health and improve lives. Over the last several years, our college has experienced fantastic growth in the size of our population, the breadth of our initiatives and the stature of our academic programs and research. We currently have more than 2,300 students and offer two undergraduate degrees, three master’s degrees and two doctoral programs, as well as 10 certificates. Our online Master of Science program is ranked #4 in the country by U.S. News & World Report; Ohio State’s online bachelor’s programs, which includes our online RN to BSN, are ranked #1 in the country. Last year, we received approximately $10.7M in external awards for research and development and rose to #16 in the nation (#6 among public colleges of nursing) for NIH funding. We created the first-ever EBP certificate of added qualification and launched a second Innovation Studio inside Pomerene Hall. We continue to champion wellness for all and encourage our students to LIVE WELL.

With this great growth comes the need for new space to help us to continue dreaming, discovering and delivering great outcomes for our community and our world. The addition to Newton Hall will not only allow us to continue to be a national and global leader in healthcare, but also to transform the future of health. Please join us!
