OHSU School of Nursing

School of Nursing

For over a century the OHSU School of Nursing has offered the Northwest’s best educational programs for nurses and nurse-educators. With campuses in Ashland, Klamath Falls, La Grande, Monmouth and Portland — and through distance-learning programs throughout Oregon, Utah and Montana — today the school is the premier regional nursing program and a national model of excellence.

Your gift can help the school to advance curriculum, enhance vital research, and attract and retain talented students and faculty.

Featured Priorities:


In the years ahead the School will continue to shape the future of nursing for Oregon. To do so, we must attract and retain outstanding students and help them afford their dreams.

Nearly 40 percent of incoming students are ineligible for federal grants because they’ve earned previous degrees. More than 30 percent of nursing school applicants who declined acceptance to OHSU cited cost or lack of financial aid as the determining factor. Tuition costs alone are currently $12,000 per year for undergraduates and $15,000 for graduate students. The average tuition-related indebtedness for graduating nursing students is more than $28,000.
