Oklahoma City University will host an open house from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. June 6 for its College of Health Professions.
Prospective students of various levels are invited to learn about the programs offered at OCU, from high school students interested in learning more about health care professions, to transfer students seeking a bachelor’s degree, to graduate students seeking advanced degrees. Programs will include nursing, nurse practitioner, physician assistant and physical therapy.
Registration for the open house can be made at
OCU’s College of Health Professions was established in 2021 and encompasses the Kramer School of Nursing, the Physician Assistant and Physical Therapy programs.
Gina Crawford, dean of the College of Health Professions, said the need for more health care professionals continues to grow.
“These rewarding careers are in high demand. Health care staff shortages are projected to remain for years to come,” Crawford said.
Open house participants will hear from program directors, faculty and staff, and may also tour the Meinders Simulation Center, featuring the latest in healthcare simulation technology. The center was recently awarded endorsement status by the International Nursing Association For Clinical Simulation & Learning. More information is available at
