Vocational, career, and community colleges provide students with educational programs focused on a specific area of employment. Because community colleges are public institutions, many students later transfer their credits to university in order to pursue a bachelor’s degree.

Vocational, career, and community colleges offer an efficient route for launching a nursing career. Licensed practical nursing (LPN) programs, for example, culminate in a certificate after just 12 to 18 months of study. LPN programs are available at nearly 50 schools throughout the state of Oklahoma, including the nine campuses of Kiamichi Technology Center. Associate's degree in nursing (ADN) programs require lengthier study, typically two to three years, to prepare students for licensure as a registered nurse (RN). Oklahoma has over 30 campuses offering ADN programs. Many of the state’s community colleges offer the ADN program on at least three distinct campuses, including the Eastern Oklahoma State College, Northern Oklahoma College, and Western Oklahoma State College systems.
