Eastern Oklahoma State College


The Division of Health Sciences offers an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing degree (AAS) in Wilburton, McAlester and Idabel. Students who complete this degree are eligible to take the examinations necessary to qualify for licensure as a Registered Nurse (RN)*.


The Nursing program at EOSC prepares graduates to earn a degree with a major in nursing who are eligible to take the NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination) to become a registered nurse. Two years (four semesters) of full-time academic study are required to complete the program. One class is admitted each August. Instruction is planned to provide close correlation between theory and practice. Hospitals, long-term care facilities, clinics, hospices, and home health agencies are utilized for nursing experience. The 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.

There is also an optional track available for students who are Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) or EMT - Paramedics.
