Oklahoma’s nursing schools are experiencing increased demand for their bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) programs. This is driven by employer preference: the state’s healthcare providers increasingly favor BSN-educated nurses in their hiring and promotion decisions. While Oklahoma’s registered nurses (RNs) earn an attractive median salary of $56,870, those with BSN degrees frequently earn top-quartile pay of $67,460 or more. Students can pursue one of two BSN pathways in Oklahoma: a prelicensure program that prepares new nurses for the NCLEX-RN exam, or an RN-to-BSN program that complements the skills of existing nurses. Below we profile three of the top BSN programs in the state.

University of Oklahoma
The University of Oklahoma’s College of Nursing is the state’s most well-regarded nursing school. This institution offers three BSN pathways: a traditional prelicensure BSN program, a licensed practical nurse (LPN)-to-BSN bridge program, and an RN-to-BSN degree completion program.
