Nursing Programs Outside Oregon

Process for Clinical Learning Placements in Oregon

The Oregon Board of Nursing requires a review and authorization of clinical learning experiences completed in Oregon by all pre-licensure and advanced practice registered nursing (APRN) students enrolled in programs based outside of Oregon.  This includes:  
  • APRN programs (nurse practitioner, nurse midwifery, nurse anesthetist, and clinical nurse specialist programs) leading to licensure provided by a non-Oregon based program;
  • Nursing programs leading to licensure at the RN or PN level provided by a non-Oregon based program; and
  • Reentry programs or pharmacologic management practicums for the purpose of obtaining prescriptive authority in Oregon.
It is the Board's goal to streamline on-line educational processes in Oregon while maintaining the integrity of the Board's rules. The forms and information are provided below.
