Oklahoma City Community College
Oklahoma City Community College was founded in 1972 and is located in Oklahoma City, OK. They offer three pathways toward an ADN within their nursing department: the traditional pathway, a “Career Ladder” (LPN to RN) pathway, as well as a baccalaureate to ADN accelerated pathway. The BS to ADN track is for those who hold a non-nursing degree. Credits earned in general education will be counted towards the ADN curriculum, providing students a quicker way to graduate. OCCC’s campus has three labs with simulation equipment, giving students the opportunity of hands-on practice before they begin their clinical rotations.
The program has a strong focus on clinical reasoning, decision-making, as well as communication techniques. Graduates are encouraged and prepared to serve the public in all kinds of healthcare settings. Traditional ADN applicants are enrolled twice yearly in the fall and in the spring. Career ladder applicants can enroll annually in the fall, and the accelerated program enrolls students in the summer and in the spring.
