Oregon MSN Programs

MSN programs in Oregon are a great opportunity for nurses wishing to advance in their career. Though one can become a registered nurse with an associate's or bachelor's degree, a master's degree allows one to specialize in a specific area of nursing and to obtain higher level positions and certification. The first step is finding the right MSN program.

Those who are interested in pursuing an MSN in Oregon have many options to choose from. Some programs are taught in a classroom, while others are entirely online. Students can also choose between full-time and part-time enrollment, depending on their individual needs.

Online vs. Traditional Programs

On-campus MSN programs in Oregon offer structure and a chance to interact in person with other nursing students. Live lectures are another benefit of this program format. For those who prefer to learn in this manner, these programs may be the best option. Students enrolled in a traditional program are expected to attend classes on campus at the time when they are scheduled. This can be a challenge for a busy lifestyle.

Online programs have many benefits. There are many organizations, such as the University of Phoenix, which are well-known for offering online degree programs. These days, even traditional colleges and universities are offering their graduate degree programs online in order to reach a wider range of people and to help working professionals balance getting and education with their busy schedules.

Stevens-Henager College is one example of an online program format. This MSN program offers the option to study either nursing administration or nursing education. Both pathways can be completed in 15 months and completely online. The curriculum consists of 14 courses for a total of 59 credits.

Georgetown University is a familiar name to most, due to the excellent education this organization is known to provide. This MSN program is offered online, allowing nurses throughout the nation to enroll. The program offers the following specialty tracks: AG-Acute Care NP/CNS, Family NP, Nurse Anesthesia, Nurse Educator, and Nurse Midwife/Women's Health NP. It consists of 35-49 credit hours and can be completed in 12-24 months full-time or 24-26 months as a part-time student, depending on the chosen specialty.
