Chamberlain College of Nursing, an Illinois-based for-profit educational institution, said it will open a campus in Cleveland's health-tech corridor on Euclid Avenue.
The college offers bachelor's degree in nursing, which the institution says can be completed within three years, as opposed to the typical four-year programs offered by most colleges. Chamberlain is accepting applications for the spring semester, which begins Jan. 7, 2013.
Chamberlain appointed Adele Webb as president of the new campus. Dr. Webb has more than 30 years experience in the health care field and has done consulting work for several high-profile organizations, including the World Health Organization, according to a news release from Chamberlain.
The new Cleveland campus, located at 6700 Euclid Ave., boasts several labs and a simulation area, which includes mock intensive care and coronary units. The campus will be Chamberlain's 12th and second in Ohio. The college opened a Columbus office in 2007.
