The University of Dayton and Sinclair Community College announced on March 4 they are partnering for a four-year bachelor of science in nursing degree program.  The first class of nursing students will start this fall, enrolling through UD.

  • Students will spend their first year at UD
  • During the second and third years, students will be duel-enrolled at both schools but pay Sinclair tuition
  • After the third year, students will have completed an associate of applied science in nursing from Sinclair
  • Students will finish the bachelor’s degree their fourth year at UD
  • Those in the program can live on UD’s campus each year, even years two and three when they’re primarily at Sinclair
  • “Employers in our region appreciate the caliber of the Sinclair nursing graduate, but also place value on registered nurses having a BSN degree,” said Rena Shuchat, the dean of Sinclair’s College of Health Sciences
