LPN Programs in Oklahoma

Becoming an LPN in Oklahoma requires the least amount of time spent in an educational nursing program, that still allows one to enter the nursing field. The approved LPN programs in Oklahoma only take about 12 months to complete. LPN licensing in Oklahoma requires that an LPN applicant for licensure by examination complete a government approved LPN program or one that the Oklahoma State Board of Nursing can verify meets all LPN educational program requirements. A list of the approved LPN schools and contact information for these schools can be found below.

As an applicant to LPN programs in Oklahoma there are a few common requirements that you should be aware of. These include but are not limited to holding a high school diploma or its equivalent (required by the Oklahoma State Board of Nursing for licensure as an LPN), passing an entrance exam, pre-requisite courses, and an interview. These are just some commonly seen requirements. You will want to contact schools of interest to learn more about the most current requirements.

A graduate from an approved LPN program in Oklahoma will have received theory and clinical experience instruction in adult nursing care, child nursing care, maternal and infant nursing care, psychiatric/mental health nursing (no clinical experiences are required only theory) and related basic nursing skills and core knowledge. Graduates are prepared to take the NCLEX-PN licensure exam as well as for professional practice as an LPN once they are approved for licensure by the Oklahoma State Board of Nursing. Applicants for licensure in Oklahoma will need to formally apply with the Board of Nursing for licensure, submit for a criminal history search conducted by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and successfully pass the NCLEX-PN examination.

LPN Salary, Job Outlook and Employers in Oklahoma

The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission released the state’s occupational salary information for June, 2010. This data shows that an LPN in Oklahoma makes an average annual salary of $32,790 and an average hourly wage of $15.76. The Oklahoma Employment and Security Commission also provides job growth projections for many careers and for the LPN profession in Oklahoma they project job growth at 8.16% through 2016. These numbers are provided as a guide and can vary significantly based on location, experience and facility type, so take them for what they are, an estimate. Though they are just estimates they do indicate positive growth and strong earning potential. A great thing about becoming an LPN is that there is always an opportunity to advance your career and make more money by advancing your education with an LPN to ADN or LPN to BSN program.

Some of the facilities where LPNs are found working in the state of Oklahoma include Davita, Brookdale Senior Living, Unity Health Center, HCR Manor Care, SunBridge, St. John Medical Center in Tulsa an Amedysis, Inc. This is just a sample of the employers that may be hiring LPNs once you become licensed.

You may also want to check out the Medical Assisting programs in Oklahoma. Medical Assistants have similar job growth projections and the training time is also similar. Some programs can be completed entirely online.

As was mentioned before, the time to complete an LPN program in Oklahoma can be as little as 12 months. Some programs can be completed on a part time basis in which case it may take 24 months. It is important to consider the time and financial investments you will put into any career training and if the resulting career will be worth that investment. Investing the time to become an LPN and enter one of Oklahoma’s fastest growing industries, health care, may be a wise investment. You will have to decide for yourself.
