Southern Oregon nursing program questionsRegister Today!
- by Lilsweetpea Feb 2, '11Hi Everyone,
Im a newbie to this site and currently working on my pre-reqs right know. I was looking for some detail about the nursing programs here in Southern Oregon, I usually only hear about up north in the Portland area. I would love to hear from people going to SOU,RCC or OIT. Whats your opinion of the programs, how many years did you apply before getting in, what your gpa is, how many people were accepted with you in the program and how many applied when you where accepted. Any other interesting details would be awesome. Thank you for your input.

- Feb 10, '11 by CuriousMeQuote from blue heelerOHSU actually has more clinical time than RCC....it's just spread out in multiple areas, instead of only being in the hospital. It evens out a bit though because OHSU gets two terms of Integrative Practicum (so 600 hours working one-on-one with one RN from January till June in Senior year) whereas RCC gets one term (300 hours IP).i had a 3.5 gpa and got into rcc and ohsu. i chose ohsu because i wanted my bsn but it is way more spendy and less clinical time than rcc.
- Feb 24, '11 by LilsweetpeaThank you both for the information. I was expecting more responses but maybe the site is not well known in this part of Oregon. It is good to hear you were accepted into both programs. It gives me some hope that it may not take forever to get in once I apply. I hope to get in at RCC and than transfer to SOU to get my BSN. Have a great day.
