The OSUIT Registered Nursing program is approved by the Oklahoma Board of Nursing and accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
The OSUIT 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 nurses. Applicants for Oklahoma licensure must meet all state and federal requirements to hold an Oklahoma license to practice nursing. Oklahoma licensing requirements, including residency requirements, can be found at: www.oklahoma.gov/nursing.
Oklahoma is additionally a member of the Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) which enables graduates of the OSUIT nursing program to seek a multistate license allowing practice in all NLC member states. For more information about the NLC including a map of current member states, please visit: https://www.ncsbn.org/nurse-licensure-compact.htm. For students residing in non-NLC member states it will be the student’s responsibility to review education and licensing requirements for those states as requirements vary.
