Sumner College has been approved by the Oregon State Board of Nursing to offer a Registered Nursing Program. Applications are now being accepted for the 2013 cohort that starts on February 27, 2013. There are only 24 seats available for 2013.
The Associate Degree in Registered Nursing program will be offered at the new second campus, located just off Airport Way in Cascade Station. The Practical Nursing program will be offered at both the Cascade Station and the main Barbur Campus.
The application, program information, as well as TEAS Test Information can found on the Sumner College Registered Nursing Page.
Here’s a sneak peak at the Cascade Station Campus that is set to open in February 2013.
If you’re considering a nursing profession, you already know that it requires a license issued by the state that you work in. The NCLEX-PN and NCLEX-RN exam is a tough test not to be taken lightly because it is what determines if you will be working as a “licensed” practical nurse or registered nurse. In the December 2011 edition of The Oregon Board of Nursing Sentinel [December 2011] accessible online for free (the official publication by the Oregon State Board of Nursing) includes an article on the process of updating and creating questions for the NCLEX exam. It doesn’t involve flipping through a text book. A lot of effort and thought is put into creating the test, which is why you should put even more effort into studying and passing the test so you can be a highly respected and important member of the health care profession.

The Oregon Employment Department just published an article stating that the aging workforce in Oregon that is approaching retirement will create openings that generation X (35-44 years old) and more so the generation Y-ers (25-34 years old) will be able to fill. The health care and social assistance industries may see the most retirements. Good news if you’re interested in becoming a nurse or other health care related careers.
