hey there, thanks for the question.
Since the engine ran out of oil, the first thing needed to be done would be a compression check.
If compression numbers are good then we can look into spark/fuel/security issues since the engine is cranking.
being that its an 05 altima that ran out of oil, more than likely this is one that had a previous catalytic convertor failure.
These are known to cause oil consumption which is why it was not noticed until the oil was either extremely low or empty.
