About Us

Sumner College has been providing a strong educational foundation for those committed to truly making a difference for over 46 years. Located in Portland, Oregon, we are a private college uncompromisingly dedicated to providing, high quality, career focused education to support those who are committed to achieving their professional career goals.

As we navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, Sumner College has continued to deliver high quality education to our student population, keeping them on track to graduate and start their new healthcare career.  We transitioned from our traditional on-campus format to a hybrid delivery model, and continue to start new classes every 10 weeks. We are committed to educating students in a safe and responsible environment during these unprecedented times.

Many of our students are referred to us by fellow coworkers, family members, clinical partner sites, and by our own graduates. We have a strong reputation in the Portland area as a school who graduates professionals who are competent and adequately prepared for employment in their chosen field of study.

Our history tells our story, and our numbers speak volumes about us. If healthcare is your passion, and a career in the field is your Dream, it is time to look at Sumner College.
