The Oklahoma Board of Nursing is in the capital, Oklahoma City. They aren't one of the compact license states, so you will need to get an Oklahoma nursing license before practicing.
The website is very comprehensive. You can find all of the forms that you will need to fill out for your license. You can also do license verification, license renewal and a change of address online, very convenient.
You can find a copy of the Oklahoma Nurse Practice Act on the site as well. They are also responsible for Licensed Practical Nurses and Advanced Practice Nurses.

Oklahoma comes from the Choctaw language meaning "red people". The state is full of Native American history, culture, museums and activities. You can enjoy any number of small communities that are all incredibly beautiful. Whether you are looking for lake, forests or the plains, it is all here.
Tulsa and Oklahoma City have everything you would expect from any big city. You will find great restaurants, theater, art and music.
Go out a little farther and you will find beautiful lakes and even waterfalls. You can fish, boat, swim or just enjoy a day at the lake.
You can also enjoy canoeing and kayaking on many Oklahoma lakes with rentals available in most state parks. You can even learn to kayak with lessonson Lake Hefner in Oklahoma City.
Hikers will find a hiking trails from leisurely strolls through paved nature trails to extreme boulder-hopping at Charon’s Garden Trail within the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge near Lawton. Mountain biking is also a favorite pastime at the Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness Area in Tulsa and in many of Oklahoma’s 35 state parks.
