Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

  • HESI A2 and TEAS exams are waived for all students ready to start BSN NURS courses in Fall 2020!

Whether it's your first or next career, you can become a nurse.

More opportunities for professional nurses exist now than ever before due to the ongoing shortage of Registered Nurses and their expanding roles. Nurses work in all types of health care, business, and service areas, and at all levels from bedside care to running their own practices or being CEOs of large corporations. Your gateway into the nursing profession is the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree at Oklahoma City University’s Kramer School of Nursing. This degree can give you eligibility for Registered Nurse (RN) licensure, or - if you already have an RN license - prepare you for further academic study and opportunities in the nursing field. Get started on your path today!
