Our registered nursing program at Sumner College is a two year associate degree program designed to develop nurses who utilize evidence for practice decisions in a variety of healthcare settings, while providing them the knowledge of issues shaping nursing and today’s healthcare workforce. Field experiences include community based maternity homes, long term care, mental health facilities, medical clinics, and critical access hospitals.

Our registered nursing program is approved by the Oregon State Board of Nursing (OSBN), authorized by the Office of Degree Authorization (ODA), and accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent College and Schools (ACICS). 

Promoting Excellence in Nursing

Our registered nursing program focuses on promoting intellectual growth and development for students in a safe and secure learning environment. We strive to create an educational environment that fosters the development of ethical, competent, and caring nurses that will shape and lead our future nursing workforce.

It is our responsibility to provide our students with the knowledge, skills, and ability needed to become successful in their chosen field. Upon completion of the program, graduates will be prepared to sit for the National Council Licensure examination (NCLEX-RN) for licensure as a registered nurse.
