The AAS in Nursing Program is brought to Oklahoma Panhandle State University by the Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City Nurse Science Department via the Internet. The Nurse Science courses include online delivery of didactic content, skill laboratory instruction on the OPSU campus, and clinical experiences in affiliated agencies in the Goodwell, OK area. General education and related courses are not included as an online component of this program. Campus attendance is required for skills labs, clinical experiences and exams.
BSN Program Mission
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program at Oklahoma Panhandle State University serves the public interest by educating Registered Nurses for entry into professional nursing practice in the Oklahoma Panhandle and surrounding areas. The program is designed to provide professional knowledge and skills to the working Registered Nurse, to support educational mobility and to strengthen community health and leadership abilities of nurses who already have a foundation in the profession, particularly in rural communities. These educational experiences are designed to prepare professional nurses for practice today and well into the 21st Century.
