Columbus, OH —

INDIANAPOLIS —Franklin University, one of the leading educators of working adults, is proud to announce it will participate as a sponsor of the 2012 Indiana Hospital Association (IHA) Annual Meeting Oct. 1-3. 

“Sponsoring such an important and impactful event is a natural outreach of our R.N. to B.S.N. major,” said Marnie Glanner, Executive Director of Franklin’s Indianapolis location.  “Being a sponsor of the 2012 IHA Annual Meeting not only demonstrates our commitment to the development of healthcare professionals but also continues our dedication to being on the forefront of healthcare education by staying aware of relevant, innovative industry trends.”

The IHA event brings together colleagues from across Indiana for three days of learning and networking and provides presentations by patient safety advocates, national leadership consultants and health care reform and election experts.  Through this forum, hospital leaders will discuss best practices to improve patient safety, as well as learn about the future of health care.

In January, Franklin University announced its approval to offer its new B.S. in Nursing (RN to BSN) Major to its College of Health & Public Administration online offerings.  The online degree completion program offers registered nurses a convenient way to enhance their ability to provide quality patient care and concurrently strengthen their value in the fast-growing nursing profession.

Franklin University’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing Major is especially crafted to build on the unique attributes and expertise of adult learners. As a registered nurse (RN) with an associate’s degree (ADN) or a nursing diploma, the comprehensive coursework can help you acquire stronger clinical reasoning,

analytical, and leadership skills.  Comprised of 6-week, all-online courses, the major is designed with the highest industry standards and uses the latest learning and assessment tools. Studies are underscored by the extensive nursing experience of the program’s highly qualified faculty, as well as Franklin’s tried-and-true online teaching methods and broad offering of healthcare degree programs.

Founded in 1902, Franklin University is one of the leading and most experienced educators of adult students. Annually, nearly 10,000 students attend Franklin, through its Main Campus in downtown Columbus, Ohio, three Central Ohio locations and in Beavercreek, as well as at co-locations across Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, in addition to online. Franklin offers more than 40 undergraduate and graduate programs (including the new Certificate in Criminal Justice and Logistics Management major) and graduates more than 1,500 students annually. The University’s MBA program is offered internationally through agreements with institutions in Europe and the Middle East. Further information regarding Franklin University can be found at
