Oklahoma City University Introduces a Flexible Track to the Bachelor’s in Nursing Degree
OKLAHOMA CITY – OCU‘s Kramer School of Nursing will introduce a part-time BSN program as part of its commitment to address the nation’s nursing shortage. The program is a perfect way to combine a full-time job or family life with a transition to a career as a registered nurse, said OCU Nursing Dean Marvel Williamson. The program will begin each January. Graduates will receive a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree and are eligible to take the RN licensure (NCLEX) examination and begin their careers as professional registered nurses. Classes, labs and clinical experiences are held during some evenings every week and occasionally on Saturdays. Last year, 98 percent of Kramer School of Nursing graduates passed the NCLEX-RN exam on their first try and since 2001, 100 percent of graduates seeking employment have been hired within one month of their job search. Scholarship opportunities are available. Interested applicants are required to complete the university application at www.okcu.edu/nursing . For more information, contact Julie Bartel-Biebrich at jbbiebrich@okcu.edu or (405) 208-5933 between 1 and 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday for transcript evaluation. Application deadline is December 1, 2009.
