Just wondering if anyone here knew on average who the top paying hospital is in the Oklahoma City area? And if you have any idea what a 2 to 4 year RN would be getting.

None of the hospitals in the Oklahoma City area are particularly high-paying. An RN with two to four years of experience is going to be offered in the low-to-mid $20s per hour at all of the major hospitals in the area. The OKC area can get away with lowball wages because there are numerous nursing schools in and around the city that continually pump new nurses into the employment pipeline, which keeps the pay rates at a certain level. Employers can literally pick and choose what they want to pay people.
I attended a nursing program in OKC and live south of the state line, in Texas, where I feel that I am being paid what I am worth.
