Bacone College Nursing Program Review

Bacone College (BC) was founded in 1880 and was the oldest college of continuing higher education. Today, they provide students with the chance to reflect how they can live, work and study together for a more meaningful experience in education that is committed to following Christian principles and values at the same time.

Bacone College – Nursing

This program has been accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) and has been approved by the Oklahoma Board of Nursing (OBN).

Graduates can take the National Council Licensure Examination for registered nurses (NCLEX-RN).

Traditional 2-Year Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) Program

This program can be completed in two years and consists of general education courses and nursing courses, the latter of which involves classroom work and clinical experiences in various healthcare settings around Oklahoma. Students will have to take various tests as required by the state and get decent proficiency scores from them.

However, this program is still under review by the OBN by now in order to identify any improvements and changes that can be made to improve the program and make it stronger overall. Until all of the reviews have been completed, no new students will be admitted into the program.

It exists solely for RNs who already have valid nursing licenses and consists of general education courses and nursing courses, as well. However, this program can also be taken online, if desired. Also, practicum experiences can be individual arranged as needed.

Licensed Practical Nursing to Registered Nursing (LPN to RN) Transition Program

This program exists for students who are already LPNs and have bachelor’s degrees, but wish to get a degree to become an RN, as well.
