    Hi Melanie,

    I'm here in Oregon too, down in Salem. How do you like OHSU? I'm debating whether to apply next year or to continue on at Chemeketa CC into their ADN program. The ADN program would be really convenient, but either way I am going to get my BSN. Welcome to the board!!! Not many of us from Oregon here

    Hi, I'm in Oregon too. Heather, are you in Chemeketa's ADN program now? My husband's little brother goes to school at Chemeketa right now. I live in Florence and have been doing all my prereqs through Lane CC in Eugene. I'm starting Southwestern's ADN program (in Coos Bay) in September and am really excited about it. After that I want to do OHSU's RN to BSN program.

    I'm not in Chemeketa's ADN program right now. I'll apply next fall and am pretty sure I'm a shoe in (it's based on a point scale for every A you get you get so many points). But I'm really struggling over if I want to go straight to OHSU or to go to the ADN program at Chemeketa. I just don't know. I'm going to get my BSN no matter what, but to leave Chemeketa and go up to OHSU is pretty much stupid on my part. I currently live with my parents while I attend Chemeketa and all my family is here so I'm pretty well taken care of, but if I go up to OHSU I'll have to find an apartment and find someway to pay for it and I'll be pretty much along with no support. I've got a few months to think about it still anyway - too much pressure!!!!

    HI! I live in Oregon too! Portland, Oregon. Right now I'm taking the rest of my prereqs for the LPN to BSN at Walla Walla College, Portland Campus. I hope to attend Summer 2005 or Fall 2005. Welcome to Allnurses!

    Thanks for the replies! I really like OHSU. I am through the La Grande campus. I've been going to school forever now so it's kinda hard to believe there's an 'end' in sight (next spring). I've had the opportunity to travel all over Oregon for clinicals, which has been awesome!! I was just up in Portland at Dornbecher's 2 weeks ago. It's allowed me to see so much more and be able to see the different techniques/methods people using in nursing care. :O)

    Hi, I have been browsing the board for awhile now. I will be attending Lane CC for my pre reqs and then transferring to whichever college will make the best offer. Don't want to be on a waitlist! I want to go straight for my BSN. Its been awhile since I first attempted college. Chose a different path for a decade. Now I can finally say I am ready!
