Platt College gives students something to talk about.


For Platt College PN Director of Nursing Gay Pearce, BS, RN, there’s no better advertising her school can receive than word of mouth.
“A lot of our students have indicated they worked with former graduates of ours and those grads have made recommendations for them to come to our program,” Pearce said. “Some like the delivery of the format we do with our program and some have been in facilities with our students.
“Word of mouth is the best thing.”
In a sea of medical education options, Platt College stands out quite simply for the results it delivers.
Platt College was founded in 1979, and since then has provided thousands of Oklahomans with the career skills they need to be qualified for new careers in an ever-changing labor market.
Throughout its history, Platt’s focus has remained on providing relevant career training in Oklahoma in a variety of fields, including healthcare and wellness, the culinary arts, and nursing, that meets the needs of an ever-changing job market and its employers.
Platt offers programs and courses designed to help you become a Licensed Practical Nurse, transition to a Registered Nurse, or even advance your Associate’s degree in Nursing (Registered Nurse) to complete and earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.
The Practical Nursing programs are designed to get you into a nursing career much sooner than most educational routes traditional programs take to enter a medical field.
With this focused program, you will enhance your theoretical knowledge with hands-on training led by experienced faculty.
Upon completion of any of Platt’s Practical Nursing programs, you will be eligible to sit for the NCLEX exam and work in settings such as private medical and nursing care facilities, home health care organizations, public hospitals, and more.
“The faculty members are involved with the students,” Pearce said. “I have an outstanding faculty and they prepare those students very well for boards. They assist them tremendously through their journey.”
Platt – which has campuses in Lawton, Oklahoma City and Tulsa – is currently enrolling for its day program, which begins in July. A third start date is in November. Qualifying students can receive financial aid, grants, scholarships as well as loans.
As of May 1, Pearce said 100 percent of Platt graduates have passed their boards this year.
And that may be the best word of mouth any nursing school could ever receive.
