Programs include LPN/LVN, ADN, BSN, MSN, and more

A traditional bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree requires four years to complete. However, many universities offer a streamlined RN-to-BSN program. This degree completion program builds on the associate’s degree in nursing (ADN), enabling working registered nurses (RNs) to obtain their baccalaureate degree in just two years.

Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) has partnered with nine local community colleges to establish the Oregon Consortium for Nursing Education. Under this program, ADN graduates from the community colleges may gain direct, non-competitive entry to OHSU’s RN-to-BSN program. Courses are available online, and they are offered on both a full- and part-time basis. This arrangement provides a great deal of flexibility for RNs who continue working while pursuing their bachelor’s degree. Participating community colleges in the consortium include Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton, Rogue Community College in Grants Pass, and Umpqua Community College in Roseburg.

Healthcare employers place significant value on the BSN degree. Nationally ranked medical institutions, like Oregon Health & Science University Hospital, appreciate the nursing knowledge and interpersonal skills that baccalaureate nurses bring to the workplace. RN-to-BSN students must complete significant coursework in anatomy, physiology, sociology, and communication. They must also dedicate numerous hours to clinical and lab experience. This extensive preparation ensures that RN-to-BSN graduates are well trained to meet the demands of an increasingly complex U.S. healthcare system.

To help Oregon’s nurses advance their training and careers, we have profiled below the state’s best RN-to-BSN programs.
