SNU's Tulsa School of Nursing Seeking RN Students

The SNU School of Nursing in Tulsa provides a RN/BS program for associate degree and diploma nurses to obtain a bachelor’s degree in as little as one night a week for 14 months.

“I have always been dedicated to service. This program just gives me a broader perspective on how to complete my vision. They helped me be the best nurse I can be!” “This program has offered me what I have searched for to complete my education,” two RN/BS graduates said.

Designed to meet the challenges of adult students’ schedules, classes meet one night a week from 6 to 10 p.m. Students attend class in small groups of about 20 to encourage consistency, motivation and cohesiveness.

The RN/BS program provides the opportunity to earn college credit for prior learning experience. Students may earn college credit for on-the-job training, military training and life experiences that have provided the student with college level learning through the development of a portfolio of lifelong learning.

“There have been so many changes in health care in the last decade that I think it is vital for nurses to have their bachelor’s degree in order to excel in their particular area,” Assistant Professor Arleen Crutcher said. Graduates from the RN/BS program have the educational preparation to pursue graduate and advanced practice studies in nursing.

Registered nurses who have earned 60 or more transferable college semester credits with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 can qualify. Approved by the Oklahoma Board of Nursing, the SNU School of Nursing has recently been accredited for the next ten years by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing.
