About Oklahoma City

Nurses and allied health professionals looking for the best healthcare employers in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, have numerous quality healthcare facilities to choose from. As one of the nation’s eminent centers of healthcare delivery, the Oklahoma City region employs more than 82,000 professionals in the healthcare sector. It currently has 36 general medical and surgical hospitals and nine specialized hospitals, including Oklahoma’s only Level 1 Trauma Center with MediFlight service.

Oklahoma City is Oklahoma’s capital and largest city. The thriving metropolis boasts a low cost of living, shorter commute times compared to the national average, and crisp, clean air that provides a quality of life that’s hard to beat. OKC has over 200 sunny days and averages less than six inches of snow each year, which appeals to healthcare workers who don’t enjoy shoveling sidewalks between shifts. Nurses and other healthcare professionals with children benefit from the many award-winning schools found in the largest school district in the state.

OKC’s plentiful sunshine also provides plenty of days for healthcare workers to get out and explore the area’s growing number of parks and 100-plus miles of cycling, running, and hiking trails. It’s easy to maintain an active lifestyle while tackling the rapids at RIVERSPORT Rapids, an Olympic-caliber whitewater facility, or kayaking, canoeing, or stand-up paddleboarding on the Oklahoma River. Since OKC is located in the center of the state, it’s also easy to explore everything else Oklahoma has to offer, including four mountain ranges and more man-made lakes than any other state.

Nurses and other healthcare professionals looking for more low-key activities may enjoy the trendy local coffee shops, checking out the world’s largest Chihuly glass tower, cheering on the Oklahoma City Thunder, or an exuberant arts and music scene. The 17-acre Myriad Botanical Gardens offers a peaceful retreat in the heart of the City and the 1,000-acre pristine expanse of Stinchcomb Wildlife Refuge is ideal for memorable encounters with wildlife and beautiful views of marshlands and bottomland forests. Plus, there’s plenty of family fun found at Frontier City, the OKC Zoo and the 20,000-square-foot children’s museum inside Science Museum Oklahoma.

Employment in healthcare occupations is projected to grow 16% nationwide from 2020 to 2030 and the employment outlook for professionals in the medical field in Oklahoma is very strong. Registered nurses in the OKC metro currently enjoy an average hourly wage of $32.94 and a mean annual salary of $68,510. The combined average hourly wage of all healthcare practitioners and technical occupations is $36.28 and the mean annual salary is $75,470. Salaries go farther in Oklahoma City because the overall cost of living is nearly 15% lower than the national average and housing costs are significantly lower by more than 44%. Hence, OKC made the top 10 list of U.S. Cities with Plenty of Jobs and Cheap Housing in October 2021.
