Supplementary Information
Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) accredits Francis Tuttle's Practical Nursing Program.

- Hold current licensure as an LPN in the state of
Oklahoma
- Have graduated within the past five years from
an ACEN accredited school
- Be employed as an LPN (there is no minimum
