Programs Leading to Licensure

OHSU holds institutional and specialized accreditation, which attests to the rigor of its academic programs that lead to licensure and participates through the state of Oregon in the National Council for State Authorization and Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA). As such, OHSU’s programs meet the accreditation standards required by these agencies. OHSU is unable to continuously monitor all state requirements for licensure in every state, and therefore is unable to make a determination if an OHSU program meets all requirements for licensure for a given state. You should always check with the individual states for the current expectations regarding licensure in that state. Additional information regarding licensure, including a state agency grid, can be found on the OHSU out-of-state authorization page under Licensure.
