You can start nursing courses as soon as you have:

A 3.0 cumulative GPA or higher
Grades of C (2.0) or higher in prerequisite science courses
English proficiency
Not more than 9 credit hours of general education courses remaining

MSN Program Details

MSN Degree Tracks:

Nursing Education is designed to prepare the nurse to teach in post-secondary nursing programs, including schools of practical nursing, associate degree programs, and baccalaureate and higher degree programs. This track also prepares leaders for staff education positions within the health care system.

Nursing Administration is designed to prepare the nurse to serve in middle and upper management roles, including executive leadership, within health care organizations. This track includes courses taken from the Meinders School of Business at Oklahoma City University related to finance and health care administration. An MSN/MBA option is also available.

Doctor of Nursing Practice Program Details

The Doctor of Nursing Practice program functions as a completion program for advanced practice nurses who already hold national certification and licensure as nurse midwives, nurse anesthetists, nurse practitioners, and clinical specialists. A track with an Administrative focus has been approved to start in August 2011, and will admit nurses who hold certification in Nursing Administration. These nurses will typically hold clinical leadership positions in tertiary care centers, but this program may also be appropriate for the nurse entrepreneur.

Entrance requirements:

You must have a master’s degree in nursing and be currently licensed as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) as a nurse practitioner, certified nurse midwife, nurse anesthetist, or clinical nurse specialist. The Administration DNP candidate must have advanced certification in Nursing Administration and a minimum of 750 hours of clinical experience in a leadership role. The graduate GPA must be at or above 3.25 on a 4 point scale. The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is not required for the DNP program. A score of at least 550 is required on the TOEFL if English is not the mother tongue. A personally written essay describing how the DNP will help the applicant achieve life and career goals, and a current CV must accompany the application to OCU.
