Identify the Right Programs for Your Career Goals

Oklahoma City.

Nursing is all about career and very good patient care. AND it's one of the most in-demand, stable, secure and quickly modified careers. We've all heard about the grand nursing shortage, and in Oklahoma the news is no different. But check out the list below-a few dozen college and university campuses right in your own backyard that deliver almost any kind of nursing degree or professional program you could need to get ahead.

Given this list, how do you go about narrowing down the search for the right program?

Tips for Pinpointing the Oklahoma Schools that Fit YOUR Needs

First decide which license you'd like to pursue — you have two: the LPN and the RN. The RN license is by far the industry standard and it will give you infinite job mobility and security, as well as a bigger salary.

Salary and Job Low-down for Oklahoma RNs

You'll find 100 hospitals located throughout the state (3) and they remain primary employers of licensed RNs, in particular. However, don't discount the other patient care facilities-nursing homes, home health, rural medical centers, doctors' offices, and outpatient clinics; and nursing specialties that fall well outside a care environment-legal nurses, forensic nurses and informatics nurses.

Maximize your salary: Of course the better salaries are clustered in the metro areas, such as Tulsa and Oklahoma City. You'll find large clusters of hospital jobs as well. However, here are a couple of ways to squeeze more juice from your nursing salary if you work in Oklahoma:

  • Experienced RNs: aggressively set disciplined career goals and go after the advanced practice specialties like nurse practitioner, nurse anesthetist, clinical nurse specialist, and nurse midwife. These pay more, they engage you on a whole new level and they give you infinitely more job autonomy. Also popular-post-grad specialties in case management, informatics, forensics and legal nursing.
  • Sign on at hospitals offering sign-on bonuses.
  • Take a travel nursing job in the state. As a resident of the state already this makes the process very streamlined, since you already have a nursing license for OK. Travel agencies advertise "hot jobs," or those that are most immediate and well-paying. Of course they could be out in the middle of nowhere or in very busy and super-stressed out metro hospitals. Choose travel assignments bundled with completion bonuses and you can instantly tack on a few thousand additional dollars once you've done your job.
