Oklahoma State University-OKC has had an accredited nursing program since about 1970. Two things surprise me: one, that you failed to recognize that and two that no one else has brought it up. The offer a two-year associate degree program. However, it is a very successful program with many RN's produced by it. I believe that there are other 2-year programs that are not listed here. Some of them may be for LPNs but I believe there are also others for RNs.

Does anyone have any advice on choosing between Southern Nazarene and OU for their MS Nursing Education? OU is online and am not sure I'd learn as much as if I went to the classroom version at SNU. Any advice by those who've attended either would be appreciated.
