About Tulsa

Nurses and allied health professionals looking for the best healthcare employers in Tulsa, Oklahoma, find a wide array of quality healthcare facilities to choose from in the city affectionately known as T-Town. Tulsa is home to some of the nation’s largest companies and healthcare is one of its key industries. According to the Oklahoma Hospital Association, Tulsa has 16 hospitals, not including several found surrounding suburbs. In May 2020, Tulsa employed 26,420 healthcare practitioners, including 8,800 registered nurses, 410 NPs, 2,410 LPNs, 890 physical and occupational therapists, 530 respiratory therapists, 520 SLPs, and 3,030 various medical technicians and technologists.

Tulsa is the second-largest city in Oklahoma after the capital, Oklahoma City. Though it’s considered a mid-sized city, Tulsa is still a vibrant metropolis located in the northeastern part of the state along the banks of the Arkansas River. The city’s low cost of living, outstanding schools, relatively temperate climate, and shorter-than-average commute, by about eight minutes, make it a popular location for healthcare workers. As part of Oklahoma’s Green Country, Tulsa is surrounded by gently rolling grassland and stunning hardwood trees. It’s usually far enough north to escape extended periods of extreme heat in the summer yet far enough south to avoid extended periods of extreme cold in the winter and only averages six inches of snow each year.

Nurses and allied health workers who call Tulsa home typically enjoy about 227 sunny days per year, which provides ample opportunities to take advantage of some great outdoor spots. Over 130 parks grace the metro area, including the popular Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness Area, Mohawk Park, and River West Festival Park. Outdoorsy healthcare professionals also benefit from over 50 miles of trails that traverse the Tulsa area with beautiful views of the River. Probably the most inviting aspects of Tulsa are its welcoming hospitality and residents who take pride in their town and all it has to offer.

Tulsa is a modern metro known for its art deco architecture and a distinct culture that comprises both Native American and cowboy heritage as well as the unique characteristics of the South, Southwest, and Midwest regions. Its prosperous Downtown area is teeming with parks and gardens and contains the Art Deco district and the Tulsa Performing Arts Center, which houses the acclaimed Tulsa Symphony Orchestra, Tulsa Ballet, and Tulsa Opera. Nurses and allied health workers can also visit world-class cultural attractions like the Philbrook Museum of Art and Gilcrease Museum or catch a concert at Cain’s Ballroom, an iconic favorite among music lovers. These are just a few of the many reasons Tulsa made the 2021-2022 top 150 Best Places to Live in the U.S. list.

Employment in healthcare occupations is projected to grow 16% nationwide from 2020 to 2030 and the employment outlook for medical professionals in Oklahoma is very strong. In May 2020, registered nurses in Tulsa earned an average hourly rate of $32.44 and a mean annual salary of $67,470. All healthcare practitioners and technical occupations combined had a mean hourly rate of $39.02 and an average annual salary of $81,160. While average healthcare wages in Tulsa are slightly higher than the state average, they’re lower than the national average. However, Tulsa's cost of living is nearly 17% lower compared to the national average and housing, which can be a major expense, costs nearly 49% less.
