In-State Faculty

 

This page describes compliance requirements for faculty residing in the state of Ohio.  If you do not reside in the state of Ohio please reference the out-of-state faculty instructions page.

Faculty can view their compliance status by logging in to https://records.nursing.osu.edu/.  From the menu ‘Compliance’ click on ‘Your Faculty Compliance Report’.  Any items that require your attention will be listed next to ‘Reasoning’.
