Oregon Nursing Schools and Programs

Oregon is beautiful country in western America. Oregon is known as the "Beaver State" home to North America’s deepest river Gorge (Hells Canyon), the country's deepest lake (Crater Lake) and the world’s second-most-climbed mountain (Mt. Hood), which also happens to host North America’s only year-round ski season. In addition to pristine public beaches, high-desert country, painted hills and wine-producing valleys; Oregon is a great place to consider residing for your nursing education.

Oregon is very serious about supporting the future nurses of its state in hopes to increase the number of nurses in the state. The Oregon Center for Nursing has a plan in place to educate and recruit nurses to the state. Oregon realizes that nurses are the forefront of patient care. Enrollment has increased however they are in dyer need for nursing educators. This creates more job opportunities in nursing as well. Oregon has established a loan repayment program as an incentive for educators to teach nursing. Oregon has excellent education programs for nursing in universities, colleges, and technical schools.
