Admission and Pre-Requisite Information

Application Requirements

All applicants must:

  • Have obtained an associate degree/diploma in nursing from an accredited program or school
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale in all college coursework
  • Hold a current and unrestricted license as a registered nurse in Oklahoma or designated state of residence in the U.S. (must list license number on admissions application)

All recommended pre-requisites listed below are required for degree completion. We encourage completion of these pre-requisites prior to beginning nursing coursework at OSU. Acceptance into the program without full completion of application materials and pre-requisites will be provisional. Students who fail to meet the provisional acceptance terms will forfeit their seat in the program and must reapply for consideration for subsequent terms.


Nursing students from OSU-OKC and OSU-Institute of Technology will be granted provisional acceptance to the program and, upon meeting the eligibility requirements, will attain full acceptance. Priority will be given to any eligible RN who has graduated from either OSU-OKC or OSU-Institute of Technology.
