Western NursingThe nursing program is currently offered at three sites: Altus, Lawton, and Elk City. Courses are “team-taught” via ITV from all sites. By establishing admission criteria and procedures, the department of nursing hopes to ensure that students selected for the program are capable of successfully completing the nursing program and passing the national examination. The WOSC Nursing Program is approved by the Oklahoma Board of Nursing and is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission. Upon graduation, students are qualified to take the NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination). The minimum time to complete the program requirements is five semesters. Classroom study is combined with practical application in nursing experiences at various clinics and hospitals. The number of applicants to be accepted will reflect the availability of appropriate clinical experience.
