Courses are offered in a face-to-face format with opportunities for specific c clinical rotations with the Veterans Administration (VANAP) program or within local neighborhood clinics and community agencies through the I-CAN project. or in an acute care or community setting

  • Complete their AAS at their Community College Partner School and would be NCLEX eligible. 
  • Would need to complete the NCLEX and have an Oregon RN license before starting courses in fall term. 
  • Start classes at OHSU on September 28, 2015.
  • Transfer NRS224 Integrative Practicum to OHSU for 9 credits of upper division nursing coursework.

  • Clinical Match: Students on this pathway will need to identify their interest in a specific clinical rotation with the Veterans Administration (VANAP), Community (ICAN), or general OHSU clinical groups through their essay response.  Students will be selected by faculty as a match for one of these clinical groups and priority admission will go towards filling the VANAP and ICAN clinical groups first.  JOIN OHSU ON THE VIRTUAL CAMPUS
