Career in nursing offers diverse job opportunities

Tulsa native Amy Amer chose The University of Tulsa’s nursing program because of the smaller class sizes that allow her to have a good relationship with professors in the School of Nursing. “They’re always willing to help and I feel like they really care about their students,” she says. “I think that’s important.”

Amer says that choosing a career in nursing offers diverse job opportunities. “You can be a professor, work in a hospital or clinic or become a nurse practitioner or nurse anesthetist.” She also appreciates the new high-tech simulation labs housed within the Oxley College of Health Sciences, which allow for hands-on learning experiences prior to beginning clinical rotations.

For more than 40 years, TU’s School of Nursing has been transforming exceptional students into nurses who forever change the lives of others and the communities in which they live. As part of the Oxley College of Health Sciences, our faculty and students collaborate, research and learn the best practices that advance the science and art of nursing.
