Eastern Oklahoma State College's Nursing program prepares individuals to perform client-centered care at the beginning staff nurse level. Graduates may pursue career interests in a variety of specialty areas and services.
Nursing Program Mission Statement
Nursing education in the community college setting provides an affordable and accessible avenue for associate degree education that also supports educational mobility. The curriculum reflects study in both nursing, general education, and health related sciences. Nursing at Eastern is supportive of both the generic and LPN/EMTP transitional tracks leading to an associate degree in applied science. Graduates are encouraged to obtain a baccalaureate degree in nursing.
The Division of Nursing offers an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing degree (AAS) in Wilburton and Idabel. Students who complete this degree are eligible to take the examinations necessary to qualify for licensure as a Registered Nurse (RN)*. There is an accelerated track available for students who are Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN).
