TCC’s Nursing program sets the standard of nursing excellence for our community. We have provided Tulsa and northeastern Oklahoma with thousands of excellent nursing professionals since 1971. Our graduates work in a profession that has been ranked in an annual Gallup poll as the No. 1 most trusted profession for 14 consecutive years.

Our Nursing Program was established in 1971 by a consortium of Tulsa-area hospitals to provide a college-based nursing program for Tulsa and Northeastern Oklahoma. Since that time, more than 4,000 nurses have graduated from the TCC Nursing Program. Our focus is to develop competent, caring graduates in a creative, supportive learning environment, which fosters excellence. The faculty is dedicated to the practice of nursing and teaching, which encourages you to maximize your own career goals. We provide programs of the highest quality that are innovative and use a variety of teaching /learning methods.

TCC offers two nursing tracks ranging from three to four semesters, including Nursing Career Mobility (LPN/Paramedic to RN) Track, and Traditional Nursing (RN) Track.

TCC’s Nursing program challenges you with a mission to:

  • Develop competent, caring graduates;
  • Prepare graduates for rewarding careers;
  • Create a learning environment that fosters excellence; and
  • Be responsive to the needs of the community.

Please take time to explore this website. We hope it will answer your questions about how to get started in your nursing career and what is offered at TCC for you. As you explore these pages, we are sure you will agree with us that the future of caring is TCC Nursing.

The Program is accredited by Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN) and approved by the Oklahoma Board of Nursing. Completion of our associate degree qualifies graduates to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) through the Oklahoma State Board of Nursing.

University Transfer Degree Information

Students should work closely with an academic advisor each semester to make certain you are enrolled in the correct courses for your degree program, especially if you are planning to transfer to a four-year college or university. Students are encouraged to begin a dialogue with their intended transfer schools as early as possible. Early coordination between TCC academic advisors and advisors from selected four-year institutions can streamline the transfer process. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that he/she understands the program/admission/transfer requirements for the transfer school.
