I was wondering how many hours a month you are required to work in Oregon in order to keep your nursing license? Thanks!

It's not determined by the month---last time I renewed, it was 900 hours in the previous 5 years. There are also no continuing ed requirements, although no one should ever turn down opportunities to further their knowledge. Hope this is helpful.
I suggest you also PM stevierae or cmggriff...they are both in Oregon.
I thought Oregon required CEUs (???)
(I live 5 minutes North of the state line and 20 minutes from Portland and have never "bothered" to get an Oregon license).
Renewal Requirements for Oregon
RN/LPN Practice Requirement
To renew your RN or LPN license, you also must meet the practice requirement for Oregon in one of these ways:
Practice nursing for a minimum of 960 hours during the previous five years.
Successfully complete an approved reentry program wihtin the two year preceding renewal.
Graduate from an OSBN-approved nursing program within the past five years.
If you are unable to meet the practice requirement, you will be required to complete an approved re-entry program before licensure. Although the OSBN encourages nurses to participate in continuing education programs as a professional responsibility, Oregon does not require continuing education credits/hours for licensure.
Link to Oregon Board of Nursing where this was taken from:
