Ashland University said Thursday that it would acquire the nursing school run by a nearby hospital system and absorb it into its own nursing program. Under the agreement, which would take effect July 1, Ashland would take over the MedCentral College of Nursing, now part of MedCentral Health System of Mansfield, and create its own College of Nursing, operating both on its home campus and at MedCentral's current site, in Mansfield. Ashland and MedCentral are both independent nonprofit institutions.
