Save Lives and Change the World with Your Nursing Degree in Oklahoma

Nursing is a high-demand field with limitless career options. Through MACU's exciting new partnership with Oklahoma City University, you can begin your BSN at MACU and transfer to OCU's acclaimed Kramer School of Nursing. Your education will prepare you to work as a nursing professional in hospitals, doctor's offices, the military, and with non-profit organizations all around the world.

There are more opportunities now than ever before due to the ongoing shortage of Registered Nurses. This need has become even more apparent in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. You can take your first steps into the nursing profession by beginning your Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree at MACU with our pre-nursing courses. After transferring into the Kramer School of Nursing at OCU, you can receive eligibility for Registered Nurse (RN) licensure. If you already have an RN license, it can prepare you for further academic study and opportunities in the nursing field.

In our partnership with OCU, we are proud to offer flexibility and individualized attention to ensure you can meet your educational and professional gaols on a schedule that suits your busy life. Courses are offered on-ground or 100% online at your convenience throughout the year.
