A Practicum to Remember
You will be able to travel overseas to a location of your choice to engage in nursing care, or you can connect with one of several health care centers here in Oklahoma City or across the country that reach out to people from various cultural backgrounds.
Your studies here can be shaped to fit your desired goals in your present position, or the position you have your eye on. Our professors work with you to craft projects in line with your goals in the program.
