Admission to Nursing (BSN/ABSN Programs)

The Linfield-Good Samaritan School of Nursing offers two programs on our Portland Campus:

  • an accelerated 15-month course of study, beginning in June, for those who have previously completed a bachelor degree in another field
  • a traditional program, beginning fall and spring, for all students.

These two programs consist of the same curriculum and requirements for graduation and only differ in time to completion.  These pages will provide the information you need whether you are exploring nursing programs, completing prerequisite courses, or ready to apply for admission.

The programs described here are for students who are not yet licensed as a RN.  Linfield also offers an online program for those already licensed and working as RNs which may be found on the Online and Continuing Education pages.
