ADN Program Details
The minimum time period to complete the Nursing Program requirements is five semesters. Students must be accepted into the Nursing Program before they may enroll in major courses. A career in nursing offers challenges, self-satisfaction, and the opportunity to be a member of the interdisciplinary team providing care in various health care settings. NUR 1221: Overview of Nursing, an introductory course, is offered each semester for anyone interested in nursing as a career. The Associate Degree Nursing Program follows a logical and sequential curriculum to provide the educational experiences necessary for entry into nursing practice as a Registered Nurse. The Nursing Program is approved by the Oklahoma Board of Nursing and is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, GA, 30326, 404-975-5000. Program graduates are eligible to apply for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. Applicants for Oklahoma licensure must meet all state and federal requirements to hold an Oklahoma license to practice nursing. Applicants with one or more felony convictions cannot apply for licensure for at least 5 years after completion of all sentencing terms, including probation and suspended sentences, unless a presidential or gubernatorial pardon is received. Please check with the Nursing Program for additional information. Applications for the Nursing Program, information on the application procedure, and the minimum requirements may be obtained from the Office of Recruitment and Admissions during application periods for fall or spring admission. Deadlines for applying to the Nursing Program are published in the college academic calendar. Advanced standing information is available from the Nursing Program for LPNs, Oklahoma licensed paramedics and transfer students with nursing course credits. Please note that each major nursing course requires the student to travel to various clinical sites. It is the responsibility of each student to provide his/her own transportation to these sites.
