Featured Academic Programs and Affiliations at Cleveland State University
Accelerated Nursing: An accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is an alternative program that can dramatically shorten the time frame for receiving a degree in nursing for students who already hold a bachelor's degree in a non-nursing subject. Accelerated program students take all of the courses required for entry into a basic BSN program, complete all nursing support courses, and take the nursing courses in a specially designed sequence providing the same number of credits as in a basic BSN program. By building upon past educational achievements, accelerated programs can graduate students with a BSN degree in four semesters.
Biomedical Engineering: The Applied Biomedical Engineering (ABE) program is a unique partnership between Cleveland State's Fenn College of Engineering and The Lerner Research Institute at the renowned Cleveland Clinic Foundation (CCF). The program is a specialization within the Doctor of Engineering, and administered by the Department of Chemical Engineering at CSU. Courses are staffed by faculty members from both Cleveland State University and the Cleveland Clinic. ABE distinguishes itself by providing strong biological fundamentals (including cell and molecular biology), and tools for success in real world research and development.
The Cleveland Clinic: Cleveland State University has numerous partnerships with The Cleveland Clinic in education and research, from the Accelerated Nursing Track to the Ph.D. in Applied Biomedical Engineering. Choices range from certificates through highly acclaimed Ph.D. programs that include extensive research in the world-class facilities at The Cleveland Clinic. The Clinic is a private, non-profit group practice that includes a 954-bed hospital, outpatient services, a research institute and an education foundation. A world-class academic medical center that is a designated national referral center and international health resource, the Cleveland Clinic provides a full range of medical services.
Perfusion: The Cleveland Clinic Foundation and Cleveland State University recently signed an agreement to begin a new degree: the Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences with a concentration in Perfusion (BSHS). A perfusionist is a skilled health professional who serves as a member of an open-heart surgical team responsible for the setup and operation of a device known as the heart-lung machine. During many types of open heart surgery, the patient's heart is stopped so that it is easier for the surgeon to work on. The patient's blood is diverted away from the heart and lungs into a heart-lung machine. The machine assumes the function of both the heart and the lungs. The perfusionist operates the machine during surgery, monitors the altered circulatory process closely, takes corrective action when abnormal situations arise and keeps the surgeon and anesthesiologist fully informed. Perfusionists often serve in supportive roles for other medical specialties in operating devices to assist in the conservation of blood and blood products during surgery. They also provide extended, long-term support of the patient's circulation outside of the operating room.
Urban Planning: The Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs, Ohio's only College of Urban Affairs, is ranked among the top schools of urban affairs in the United States. The College is ranked second in the graduate specialty of city management and urban policy in U.S. News and World Report's 2002 issue of America's Best Graduate Schools. The College offers twelve degree programs: Bachelor's, Master's, Ph.D. and joint degree programs provide the opportunity to earn the Juris Doctor (J.D.) with a Masters in Public Administration, Master of Urban Planning, Design, and Development and Master of Environmental Studies. A focal point for community outreach and research, the College is home to the Economic Development Quarterly (EDQ), the leading journal in the field of economic development.
