Hi. I've not used Apex so the following is based on some searching and weeding of the results - I hope I found what you are looking for. The consensus seems to be that you need to use an alternative datepicker, and this blog seems to walk you through the process:

Oracle’s native datepicker is extremely primative and is in urgent need of an update. I do not like the fact that it pops up a new window, which in my experience can easily be lost behind other windows and forgotten about. Luckily there is a better solution out there, in the form of a jQuery datepicker. This does not require a new window and also does not require much to integrate into an APEX application. Here is a short guide on how to integrate jQuery datepicker into APEX.

however the image on that page doesn't indicate a year drop-down - but this does:
http://jqueryui.com/datepicker/#dropdown-month-year

It appears you must also alter some of the properties of that datepicker to display the years: http://api.jqueryui.com/datepicker/#option-changeYear

hope this helps.
