The partnership dates back to 1996, producing a total of 136 graduates over the years with many of the students continuing their education through OPSU's Bachelor of Science program in nursing. This year's graduates include: Shelby Alfred, Destiny Boles, Whitney Campbell, Shirelle Irhman, Robbin Johnson, Mistina Merwin, Alyssa Mueller, Brittney Renner, Michelle Turner, Tosha Weyhmiller, Mallori Wilhelm, and Kylee Young.

Many of these students plan to work in the local area providing health care throughout the five-state service area of OPSU. The presence of the OSU-OKC nursing program on the campus of OPSU has helped to decrease the nursing shortages for local hospitals and health care organizations.

The OSU-OKC nursing program, in partnership with OPSU, has been made possible through the encouragement and support of Rose Marie Smith, Connie Belford, Dr. Judy Kemper, Dr. Bill Pink, and President Natalie Shirley of OSU-OKC. Congratulations to the 2013 nursing graduates!
