Hi, I'm dying to move away from where I'm at now and Oregon has always been a place I've wanted to live. But looking around it seems that all the colleges and universities have waiting lists and lotteries to get into their nursing programs
. Where I'm at now I can get into the program pretty much based on grades alone. So my question is, are there any
nursing programs in Oregon that don't have waiting lists? I know it's a long shot but I thought I would ask. Thanks for the help.
PS. Thought I would clarify I would prefer an RN program, either associates or BSN. I'm not averse to an LPN program but the RN is my goal.
Linn Benton Community College does not have a waiting list. Grades in core courses, plus six short essay questions are the only things they look at. You need to live in the area (Linn or Benton counties) for at least 90 days before the application is turned in in order to increase your chances. LBCC is located in Albany, Oregon which is about 70 miles south of Portland. LBCC: Admission Forms

Oh, and you need a CNA certification in Oregon, CPR.... you get the idea.
