Nursing Division


Welcome to the Northern Oklahoma College Division of Nursing! We are passionate about helping students become exceptional nurses. At Northern, you will develop relationships with faculty who are committed to helping you learn how to learn so you can reach your academic and career goals.

Northern’s Associate Degree Nursing program prepares graduates enter nursing as competent, safe, beginning practitioners prepared and committed to providing direct client care in acute care settings, extended health care facilities, and community-based settings. Graduates are eligible to apply for Registered Nurse (RN) licensure.

I invite you to explore our website to learn more about the Division of Nursing. Requirements for admission are listed under Application Information. There are two pathways for admission:

  • LPN Bridge Pathway for those who are already licensed LPNs and want to advance to RN
  • Traditional Pathway for all others who want to become RNs

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis with preference given to those received by due March 31 for fall start and October 1 for spring start.

Please contact us with any questions:
We look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals!

Be Exceptional – Be Life Changing – Be an NOC Nurse
