Rogers State University (Department of Health Sciences)




DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH SCIENCES

The department offers Associate of Applied Science degree programs with majors in Nursing and Emergency Medical Services.

The department also offers a nursing bridge option to licensed paramedics and Licensed Practical Nurses as an avenue for acceleration toward Registered Nurse licensure.

Finally, the department offers an Associate of Science degree in Pre-Nursing. This degree is designed for students preparing to transfer to a baccalaureate nursing program.

The new Bachelor of Science Program in Nursing provides an opportunity for associate degree nursing graduates to achieve advanced academic and personal goals and to develop stronger clinical reasoning and analytical skills to advance their careers.

Many professional practice settings require or highly prefer the baccalaureate degree for specific nursing roles, particularly those that involve community health or nursing management.

RSU NURSES: EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS

Rogers State University offers nursing students an opportunity to build their nursing knowledge and apply their skills in a clinical setting. Students receive a challenging and rigorous education at an affordable price.

RSU nursing students score higher on the registered nurse licensure examination than most graduates of programs from any other Oklahoma college or university. In 2006, the pass rate of RSU nursing graduates (two-year program) was 97 percent, compared to a state average of 89 percent and a national average of 88 percent.

RSU NURSING: A RESPECTED PROGRAM

The RSU Nursing Program gives students the tools they need to be successful healthcare providers. State-of-the art facilities combined with experienced faculty and clinical rotations at major hospitals create a top-notch nursing education for students seeking their associate in applied science or a bachelor of science in Nursing.
