I loved the fact that RN-to-BSN students could take most courses either online or as a couple of weekend intensives. That allows nurses, who're working in a profession that's busy 'round the clock, to study when it's convenient for them.

I like the old buildings, gardens, views of Portland, friendliness of the fellow students and support of the instructors. Location of three hospitals in walking distance. The variety of medical treatment specialities for student exposure.
