Students are required to provide a number of documents prior to matriculation to help the institution prepare for your arrival and clinical settings. Please see the "getting started" section of the orientation page for this information. For some cases the required materials are location specific and in those cases we have identified additional information for your review below.
CPR locations in the Portland area: All undergraduate nursing students are expected to maintain a current CPR certification. Certification for incoming Portland and Monmouth students must be at the BLS Healthcare Provider level and must be obtained through the American Heart Association, only. Classes that include the Automated External Defibrilator (AED) are optional. A hybrid AHA Healthcare Provider course is acceptable – the first part is offered online with parts 2 and 3 – skills practice and testing completed on-site. Please check the AHA course finder to identify a Healthcare Provider BLS level CPR training that works for you. For information on finding CPR courses, please contact your local chapter of the American Heart Association or check the American Heart Association CPR course finder web page for local AHA courses.
Copiers: Students may use one of the many copiers located in the School of Nursing building.
Oregon Nursing License Requirements: The Oregon State Board of Nursing requires all graduate nursing students and all students in the undergraduate RN to Bachelors program who will be taking clinical courses at agencies within Oregon to hold a current Oregon RN license.
