    Associate degree programs in Tulsa area are TCC, RSU - in Claremore, Connors in Muskogee ( they have an awesome pass rate), OSU Institute of Technology in Okmulgee ( not a bad drive, that is where I am going and drive from Tulsa) I think that is about it for associate programs. BSN programs in Tulsa are OU-Tulsa, TU, ORU, and Langston University.

    Currently I drive 4 days a week, when I start the RN program in August I imagine it will be about the same. They also have dorms on campus (family and single) that you can live in if needed.
    OU Tulsa is a really good program from what I hear ( I have also worked with nurses that graduated from there) it is a BSN program and I am applying to finish My RN-BSN after I graduate from OSU. Not sure how hard it is to get into though. I do know that grades are really important and most people who get in have a science GPA of 3.5 or higher and overall GPA of 3.5 as well.
    Are you moving or just moved to Tulsa?
    Good luck!

    Oh wow thank you that isn't too bad. I actually currently live in B'ville and am going to school to get my Bachelors in Business Administration with health care and then wanted to go through nursing school. How are you liking the program there? Thank you for everything! Good luck to you as well!

    I like OSU! Teachers seem to really care about their students classes are small and everyone gets to know everyone! I like a lot of people that are starting with me in the program! So it helps! Since you are getting your Bachelors in Health Care admin you may want to seek out OU Tulsa. They have an 18 month accelerated program for people that have a bachelors in another field. I knew a girl who did that and she said it is very intense, but if you commit can do it! OU Tulsa website has info about it and all the classes you need to get accepted!

    Thank you so much for all the info you have been extremely helpful and I greatly appreciate it!!! Good luck w/ the nursing and that is awesome that the classes are like that and especially if people in there that you like is a total bonus! Let me know how things go and I will check out OU! Did your friend like the program?

    Again- Thank you so much!

    AshDoll -

    Your welcome! It really does help to get information from the people then the schools sometimes. (obviously the schools are biased!) I am so fortunate that I found this site! I have gotten a lot of info off here about specialties, programs ect..
    Yes, my friend did like the program she said totally intense but it really was worth it! If I had my bachelors in something else that is the route I would had taken!
    I will let you know how OSU is going! I am so excited to have been accepted to a program, and I feel very blessed to have been chosen out of the all the qualified applicants. We accepted 30 and I was told well over 100 apps!

    I wish you well on your education! Good Luck on whatever school you to choose to go to!

    I start my Junior year with University of Tulsa BSN program. It is an expensive program but they have a lot of scholarships and grants. I start Med Surg and Labor Delivery next semester. You should look at some of the BSN programs too.
