COVID-19 NEWS & UPDATES - Felbry College


March 22nd, 2020 Update

In line with the latest Order by the Ohio State Governor due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Felbry College has transitioned all classes to online. Steps have been taken to ensure that some of our staff are working remotely except in circumstances where in-person activities are required; to maintain basic minimum operations of the College. Staff, faculty and student have been directed to maintain social distancing and other safety precautions.

As an institution, we are committed to the safety of our faculty, staff, students and community at large. We are also committed to continuing to impart the art of caring by ensuring that nursing education is not adversely affected by this pandemic.

As a nation, we cannot afford any further exacerbation of the shortage of nurses. To this end, we will continue our current semester online and continue to enroll students towards our Summer Semester.

Our profound gratitude is to those health care workers on the front lines of confronting this public health emergency.

FCSON wants to use this medium to encourage all our staff, Faculty, Students and our community to please take the recommendations of the CDC and department of health authorities seriously as regards staying home, social distancing and hand washing.

Together, we will get through this.

For questions and comments, we can be reached at 614-781-1085 or contact us.

Felbry College School of Nursing (FCSON) is closely monitoring the emergence of COVID-19. As the situation continues to change rapidly, our top priority remains the health and safety of our community both on and off-campus.

FCSON remains open and operational and has implemented appropriate measures to protect the health of the community.

As a precautionary and protective measure, effective March 16, 2020, FCSON has transitioned classes to an online learning environment until further notice. Exceptions will be made only for certain clinical/lab experiences or fieldwork in which students are actively serving patients or clients.

FCSON will make decisions based on public health guidance and current conditions here and elsewhere. This page will be updated regularly and highlight the latest statements or guidance from the College.
