OKWU nursing student smiling

A healing touch.

OKWU’s online Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN) is a journey of knowledge, personal experience, and faith, designed to not only improve your professional character but also your self-awareness as a caregiver. Our nursing program, built on the foundation of Christian belief, advances our students’ existing foundations of knowledge and personal experiences, giving credit for what they already know and providing a deeper perspective on the art and science of nursing. Our curriculum is also infused with biblical lessons and values consistent with the theology of The Wesleyan Church.

Why it matters

Life or Death
Lower Mortality Rates, Fewer Medication Errors, lower readmission rates, shorter length of stays, cost savings, Positive Outcomes are connected to nurses who provide care that have a BSN or an MSN.

Changing and Complex Healthcare System
Complex needs of patients and the healthcare system in general require a higher level of education in the nurse. The Institute of Medicine calls for increasing the number of BSN prepared nurses to 80% and doubling the numbers of doctorate prepared nurses.

Required by Employers
88% of employers are now requiring the BSN as an entry level degree for hiring.
