    Thank you loloberry for this information! I will definitely look into it!
    I read on the site their school that they have roll over admissions? if I were to apply within this month and hopefully be accepted, which start date do you think I would I ideally start? (spring, summer, fall)? It says two letters reference forms are required. Would those be mailed separtely or with my application (am I allowed to view it or must they be sealed?) and After you did apply, how long did you wait before hearing back from the school? or getting an acceptance letter?

    Also I noticed the school is more of a facillity and probably would not have dorm rooms and housing. I am a male student that would hope to live close and nearby the school, do you think there would be appropriate and reasonable places to live nearby? sorry for asking so many quesitons but I am very unfamiliar with this process since im 20yrs old, live at home, and just barely started working. x]

    Hey armada, I think the start date is totally up to their discretion and I have no idea what they base it on (anyone, please correct me if I'm wrong). There are no dorms, but lots of apartments nearby. Craigslist could be your friend in this situation. Would you be moving from far away? Their website should say which classes you absolutely need to have finished at the time of application. Sometimes it's just listed as how many credits you have to complete (typically 30 of 45 or something like that) and not just specific classes (excepting A&P).

I would like to start at that school sometime next yr if possible. I live in Los Angeles California, so out of state is general is very far for me lol. Thanks for the info! il check their pre-req page again for any side notes!

    Gotcha -- don't rule out the other OCNE cc's either -- there's 3 in the Portland area alone, and a lot more throughout the state. Same program, different perks. Check out http://ocne.org/schools.html and compare their applications. Good luck and don't hesitate to ask questions on here. I got a lot of good information here.

    As far as I know, you don't need o-chem. I'm in an OCNE program and I never took it. The OCNE schools are all BSN programs if you choose to go the 3rd year. Check out: Linfield (portland campus), University of Portland, Clark College (BSN through WSU Vancouver), OHSU...there's probably more I'm not thinking of. At this stage, google is your best friend.
