Programs include LPN/LVN, ADN, BSN, MSN, and more

In Oklahoma, most associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) programs focus on licensure for aspiring registered nurses (RNs). However, a handful of associate’s degree programs offered by Platt College prepare candidates to work as licensed practical nurses (LPNs). In either case, the associate’s degree requires just two years of fulltime study, much briefer than traditional four-year degree programs. Oklahoma’s registered nurses can look forward to an attractive median income of almost $57,000 upon graduation. We highlight below a few of the top ADN programs in the state.

Connors State College
This college admits approximately 48 students in January and August of every year. It also offers a career ladder program for existing LPNs to begin the program with a transition course. Tuition fees for the program are $8,550, although there are numerous grants and scholarships available for students who need financial assistance.

Oklahoma City Community College
This community college offers three pathways to an ADN: traditional, career ladder, and baccalaureate-to-ADN. The school also has a unique class schedule: students admitted in the fall semester follow a daytime schedule for theory classes, while spring admits follow an evening schedule. Upon graduation, students can seek employment with major local healthcare providers like BrightStar Care and Oklahoma Surgical Hospital.
