Oklahoma, known as the Sooner State, is ranked #30 in total number of CRNA Schools in the United States. It shares the #30 CRNA School ranking with Washington, Iowa, Maine, Missouri, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, and a few others. Oklahoma is generally well known for its large Oil industry and universities in Oklahoma City, the State Capital, as well as Tulsa. It is also known for its beautiful and diverse scenery – East Oklahoma is home to forests and West Oklahoma with prairies and grasslands.
Located in the West South Central United State, Oklahoma is part of the RN Compact States agreement. This means RN nurses are able to move around freely and work within all 33 approved multi-license states. However, it’s important to note that there is no such APRN Compact for nurse anesthetists yet though this may change in the future.
Nurse Anesthetist Programs in Oklahoma
There is only one CRNA Programs in Oklahoma located in the city of Tulsa as shown below:
- University of Tulsa CRNA, Tulsa (Doctor of Nursing Practice)
All the CRNA schools in Oklahoma are DNP Doctorate degrees. There are no MSN master’s degrees offered any longer in Oklahoma.
CRNA students appreciate that Tulsa, where the University of Tulsa CRNA Program is situated, is one of the most affordable cities to live and work in the United States. This is because residents in Tulsa still have 85% of their salary remaining after paying rental. The University of Tulsa is also offering DNP Scholarships up to US$10,000 for qualified candidates to support students financially.
CRNA Schools in Oklahoma
As of Year End 2020, there are 122 CRNA schools in the United States and 2.4 CRNA schools in each State on average. To compare, there are 13 CRNA schools in Pennsylvania and 9 CRNA schools in Florida. In addition, North Carolina and Tennessee both have 6 CRNA schools. On the other hand, there are no CRNA programs at all in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, New Mexico, Vermont, New Hampshire, Alaska, and Hawaii. Oftentimes, the States with more CRNA schools tend to have more CRNA jobs as well. This rule of thumb also applies to Oklahoma. With only one CRNA school, Oklahoma is ranked #27 in number of CRNA jobs in the US.

Unfortunately, the University of Tulsa CRNA does not publicize its CRNA class size and acceptance rates.

Different States have different demand and supply economics of nurse anesthetists, so my advice is to be sure to read up on different states to see which ones fit you best.
Nurse Anesthetist Programs in OK Conclusion
To sum up, if you are interested in studying at CRNA Schools in Oklahoma, there is only one school – the University of Tulsa CRNA. CRNA students in Oklahoma appreciate the affordable cost of living as well as beautiful diverse scenery. As there are not many CRNA programs in OK, I also recommend CRNA applicants also apply to CRNA Schools in Texas where the are 5 programs.
Pursuing a CRNA program in Oklahoma will also make sense if you plan on staying within the State after graduation. This is because it is common that a SRNA nurse can find nurse anesthetist jobs within the same State easier than students from out of State upon finishing school.
