It’s that time again… this month’s Nurse Practitioner Program of the Month is Oregon Health and Science Univeristy. Our first featured school out West, Oregon Health and Science University has five campuses located throughout Oregon. Many of OHSU’s nurse practitioner specialties can also be completed completely online. OHSU offers four nurse practitioner specialties and plans to continue to offer these programs at the master’s level. The university offers a DNP program for students who wish to further their education. Graduates of OHSU’s nurse practitioner have an excellent pass rate of 95-100% on the national nurse practitioner certification exam. 100% of OHSU’s graduates are employed as nurse practitioners within six months of graduation. Impressive.
Why are we featuring OHSU this month? In addition to their remarkable statistics and wide array of program offerings and locations, students in OHSU’s School of Nursing like to have a good time. Check out this video created by student Iris Sunwoo highlighting student life at OHSU School of nursing. This video by student Michelle Lane discussing her nursing education and how it has affected her life also made me laugh. Definitely an NP program worth considering.
