Oregon Consortium for Nursing Education (OCNE)

BMCC’s Nursing program is a member of OCNE; a shared curriculum with Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU). BMCC students are co-enrolled with OHSU and offered the same classes at a much lower tuition rate. BMCC graduates have the opportunity to begin working as a nurse immediately, and if desired, may complete one additional year of study online to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from OHSU.
