Department of Nursing
Welcome to the University of Central Oklahoma Department of Nursing.
The first nursing class from the nursing department at the University of Central Oklahoma graduated in 1972. Since that time, over 3,500 well-qualified graduate nurses have entered the workforce. Graduates of this program are known for being some of the best nurses in the state of Oklahoma and around the nation, and the UCO Department of Nursing is proud to continue this tradition.
Students interested in earning a nursing degree from the University of Central Oklahoma now have multiple options for their education. The core of the program is the traditional four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing and the two-year Master of Science in Nursing. Building on these options is the R.N. to B.S. track for R.N.s who want to complete their Bachelor's degree in nursing.
The baccalaureate degree program in nursing and master’s degree program in nursing at the University of Central Oklahoma are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).
