EOSC has offered the
Registered Nursing (R.N.) program at the Idabel campus since the early 1990s. Student

program accepts applications for the freshman nursing class every February to begin
the nursing program the following fall term. These students typically have
already taken pre-requisite courses necessary to being the program. A
transition program is also available for students who are already licensed
practical nurses (LPN) or paramedics. Applications for the transition program
are accepted each October with courses beginning in January of each year. Students
can earn LPN and paramedic licenses from programs such as those offered at the
Kiamichi Technology Center.
