Nursing StudentNational Standards, Local Expertise

Located at the Sylvania Campus, PCC’s Nursing program is accredited by the Oregon State Board of Nursing and Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN). In our program, you will learn the knowledge and skills required for an entry-level nursing job, and qualify to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses, which is a requirement for practice. Our program is designed to prepare the student to be licensed as a registered nurse (RN). RNs deliver nursing care in a variety of healthcare settings.

This coalition of statewide nursing educators and programs consists of OHSU, PCC, Umpqua Community College, Southwestern Oregon Community College, Rogue Community College, Lane Community College, Clackamas Community College, Mount Hood Community College, and Blue Mountain Community College. OCNE schools have the same prerequisites and comparable application processes for students.

What Graduates Are Saying ...

“My advisor at PCC taught me to be a compassionate nurse. They have such great faculty and an incredible learning atmosphere. They had faith in me. With most teachers you think they are against you and it’s all about grades, but at PCC they encourage you to succeed.”
