Reviews for Oregon Health & Science University
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.
OHSU has top-flight health-science resources and a library that would knock your socks off -- and which students can access from home. Nursing-school professors are experienced, exacting and kind, as you might expect of professors who started out as nurses.
I never lived on campus, so cannot comment on student life. My program was for working RNs who wanted to complete the 10 classes required for a BSN. We worked mostly online -- a big benefit, because that meant not having to drive to the campus for classes.
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.
I like the challenging class. There were no give away classes. All required study and course requirement completion to academic standard. A normal load is 10 - 12 hours with hospital clinicals. I seemed to do my best at 15 hours plus.
It's a safe campus. Parking is ample. I participated in the Oregon Student Nurse Association activities. The campus had an active Army Nurse Reserve Officers Corps. Weekly military classes, and two weeks field training at various military bases and hospitals.
