We've organized a comprehensive list of Oklahoma nursing schools. Below you'll find information on specific nursing programs such as LPN certificates and ADN, BSN, and MSN degrees. You'll also find a profile of nursing education and careers in each major Oklahoma city.

Oklahoma’s four-year institutions include public universities, private universities, liberal arts colleges, and career colleges. The state is home to roughly 30 college or university campuses with a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree program. Oklahoma also has five universities that offer one or more master's degree programs in nursing. Bachelor’s and master’s programs are increasingly valuable as nursing employers demonstrate a growing preference for advanced degrees.

Oklahoma has three primary nursing roles. In order of increasing responsibility and pay, these roles are certified nursing assistant (CNA), licensed practical nurse (LPN), and registered nurse (RN). Each nursing role carries distinct educational requirements.

Certified nursing assistants must complete a brief certificate program. This CNA certificate can be earned within eight to ten weeks at a number of community colleges and technology centers throughout Oklahoma. The state’s CNAs earn a median annual salary of $21,490.
