Associate of Applied Science Nursing

OCNE Logo (nursing)

The Associate of Applied Science in Nursing degree prepares graduates to become licensed as a Registered Nurse. Successful completion of six quarters qualifies students for meeting the academic requirements to take the NCLEX exam for licensure in the state of Oregon. The license is transferable across the nation. Once admitted, the student is required to take all curriculum courses as they appear in the catalog or before. This is a restricted entry program, and students must submit a separate application along with their college admission application.

The 2015 Application will be posted in December 2014.
