The Western Oklahoma State College Department of Nursing Education is approved by the Oklahoma Board of Nursing. Gradates of this state-approved program are eligible to apply to write for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Applicants for Oklahoma licensure must meet all state and federal requirements to hold an Oklahoma license to practice nursing.

For any students seeking licensure outside the state of Oklahoma, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure he/she meet all requirements for licensure in the state in which they reside. Contact information for all nursing licensing boards can be found at the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) website at https://www.ncsbn.org/contact-bon.htm.
