OHSU Connection

Students should understand that although co-admitted to the Oregon Health Sciences University School of Nursing, those who choose to transition from the UCC Nursing Program to OHSU will have to undergo a background history check for OHSU at the time of transition and ability to enroll in OHSU courses may be negatively impacted by any criminal history in their background.

Oregon Consortium for Nursing Education

UCC is a member of the Oregon Consortium for Nursing Education (OCNE) and offers a competency-based curriculum jointly developed by nursing faculties from the nine community college and Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) consortium partners. The core competencies address the need for nurses to be skilled in clinical judgment and critical thinking; evidence-based practice; relationship-centered care; interdisciplinary collaboration; assisting individuals and families in self-care practices for promotion of health and management of chronic and acute illness; end of- life care; and teaching, delegation, leadership and supervision of caregivers. The first five terms after admission to the UCC Nursing program are identical for the associate and bachelor’s degree courses. Term six offers students the ability to complete the AAS degree at UCC and provides the educational eligibility for NCLEX-RN licensure testing. Students who complete the AAS degree at UCC and pass the NCLEX-RN exam also have the option to complete the upper division nursing courses for the bachelor’s degree from OHSU (the OHSU bachelor’s requirement of statistics may be completed at UCC but 15 credits of upper division non-nursing courses must be completed through other colleges or universities).
