I chose pre-nursing because I want to help people. At USAO, I’m getting a great education from professors who know my name and are fully invested into helping me to become a better student and a better communicator.  -Lauren Davis/Lexington, OK

Pre-nursing students seeking to receive the bachelor of science degree as well as becoming registered nurses will be applying to enter two clinical years at a college of nursing after completing two years of designated academic courses on the USAO campus.

After successfully finishing the four years, they will be eligible to write for the state board examination for licensure as a registered nurse and also have a degree from the university where they completed their upper-division nursing major.

Since admission to the last two years is selective, good achievement in prior academic work and early advisement from the college of nursing you wish to attend are important.
