In March 1912, the first evaluations of training schools were completed by the Oklahoma State Board for Examination and Registration of Nurses. Fourteen schools were accredited. The training schools became nursing schools, pupil nurses became nursing students. The programs began to resemble schools with fixed terms, scheduled classes that met regularly and issued transcripts, as they conformed to the rules and regulations of the Board. 

The first licensing exam was given to seven applicants in Oklahoma City on October 21 and 22, 1912. Each Board member was assigned two subjects for which they wrote, and graded the answers to, the exam questions. All seven candidates passed the exam, the highest score being 94%, the lowest being 82%.
