Linfield College offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) at our Portland campus. Students attending the McMinnville campus can apply to transfer to the Portland campus after completing approximately two - two and half years of prerequisite coursework.
All McMinnville students interested in prenursing will declare prenursing as their area of study while on the McMinnville campus. Prenursing students will remain with their originally assigned advisor (colloquium or transfer) until they transfer to the Portland campus. In addition, all prenursing students are required to meet with the prenursing advisor prior to registration each semester.
Registration for Spring 2014: November 4-7, 2013.
