Nursing Accelerated Pathway
The Baccalaureate to Associate Degree Nurse Accelerated Pathway (BADNAP) at Oklahoma City Community College is designed for individuals who have completed an undergraduate degree or higher in a field other than nursing.
Up to 45 students are admitted to this pathway, twice per year in June and January. The associate’s degree in nursing requires a total of 71-72 credit hours, 35-36 of which are in general education/support credits and 36 within the nursing major.
All education/support courses must be completed prior to the start of NUR 1519.
The 36 hours of nursing credit are designed to be completed in 10 months of concentrated study.
Graduates of the BADNAP pathway receive an associate’s degree in nursing and are eligible to sit for the state examination for licensure (NCLEX-RN) as a registered nurse.
