Students in the medical field often have to take a lot of time to complete school in their respective fields.

Oklahoma City University (OCU) is bringing their nursing program to Lawton. This program, according to Denise Burton, Chair of RN to BSN Education of the Kramer School of Nursing at OCU, will allow students to complete their RN two semesters.

To get into the Nursing program students must apply to OCU and submit all official transcripts (including vocational school).

In addition to being accepted to the program RN and BSN students will receive a special tuition scholarship from OCU.

“All students will receive a twenty-five percent tuition scholarship,” Burton said.

Burton explained that RN students meet their math and science requirements with an RN licensure.

With the OCU Lawton nursing program, classes will be held once a week for four hours at Comanche County Memorial Hospital on Mondays from 2 p.m., to 6 p.m. Classes begin in August.
