Goodwell, Okla. — In a recent study, “30 Great Small Colleges for a RN to BSN Degree”, done by Best Master of Science In Nursing Degrees, the online RN to BSN Nursing Program at Oklahoma Panhandle State University was selected as number seven among the top 30 honorees. To view the details of this study online go to

The RN to BSN program at OPSU was founded in 1996 and was one of the first nursing programs to offer all BSN nursing courses online. The unique program focuses on the adult learner and does not require campus attendance. It is designed to meet the distinctive challenges that face busy, registered nurses balancing family, work, and outside obligations.

This affordable program offers both full-time and part-time options allowing students to set their own pace. Students may be admitted in the fall, spring, and summer.

Oklahoma Panhandle State University is accredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The nursing program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.

Nursing is one of the most in-demand fields in the country. It has been estimated that by 2020, 80 percent of nurses will need their BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) degree in order to meet the educational needs of the field.

For more information, please contact Judy Unruh, Program Interim Director, at or 580-349-1436.
