    If you want to join a career field that is full of personal and professional rewards, becoming a nurse could be for you.

    Qualified, skilled nurses are in high demand worldwide. In fact, by the year 2020, there will be an estimated shortage of 800,000 nurses. That’s because the global population is living longer and requiring more from health care providers.

     At Oklahoma City Community College, you can begin your studies and work toward an associate degree in applied science in one of three nursing program pathways:

    You must apply and be accepted as an OCCC student in order to apply for acceptance into the nursing program.

    Contact an academic advisor to give you direction on the best plan of study for you or to find out how to apply.

    Information on deadlines for application submission can be found in the current class schedule under Academic Calendar: www.occc.edu/schedule/index.html

    Each class will be selected from eligible applicants who have been ranked according to a preference point system (see application). Remaining applicants will be placed on an alternate list.

    Please see the Prospective Student Information Letters located on the OCCC Nursing webpage for additional information (including admission process, curriculum patterns, estimated costs, clinical requirements, and licensure as a registered nurse).

    Additional information for applicants to the nursing program from the Oklahoma Board of Nursing:

    The Oklahoma City Community College nursing program is approved by the Oklahoma Board of Nursing. Graduates of this state-approved program are eligible to apply to write the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for (registered or practical) nurses. Applicants for Oklahoma licensure must meet all state and federal requirements to hold an Oklahoma license to practice nursing. In addition to completing a state-approved nursing education program that meets educational requirements and successfully passing the licensure examination, requirements include submission of an application for licensure, a criminal history records search, and evidence of citizenship or qualified alien status. Applicants for practical nurse licensure must also hold a high school diploma or a graduate equivalency degree (G.E.D.). To be granted a license an applicant must have the legal right to be in the United States (United States Code Chapter 8, Section 1621). In addition, Oklahoma law only allows a license to be issued to U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and legal permanent resident aliens. Other qualified aliens may be issued a temporary license that is valid until the expiration of their visa status, or if there is no expiration date, for one year. Applicants who are qualified aliens must present to the Board office, in person, valid documentary evidence of:

    • A valid, unexpired immigrant or nonimmigrant visa status for admission into the U.S.;
    • A pending or approved application for asylum in the U.S.;
    • Admission into the U.S. in refugee status;
    • A pending or approved application for temporary protected status in the U.S.;
    • Approved deferred action status; or
    • A pending application for adjustment of status to legal permanent residence status or conditional resident status.

    Applicants in the above six categories will only be eligible to receive a license card that is valid for the time period of their authorized stay in the U.S., or if there is not date of end to the time period of their authorized stay, for one year. The license card is required to indicate that it is temporary. The information will be verified through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) Program, operated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

    The Board has the right to deny a license to an individual with a history of criminal background, disciplinary action on another health-related license or certification, or judicial declaration of mental incompetence. These cases are considered on an individual basis at the time application for licensure is made, with the exception of felony convictions. An individual with a felony conviction cannot apply for licensure for at least five years after completion of all sentencing terms, including probation and suspended sentences, unless a presidential or gubernatorial pardon is received. Additional information may be obtained at www.ok.gov/nursing.

    It is recommended that you submit your application to the Oklahoma Board of Nursing approximately two months (but no more than four months) before graduation. This will ensure adequate time for processing. Instructions for completion of the application and submission of required documents can be found at www.ok.gov/nursing.
