Oregon State Board of Nursing > Web site
The Oregon State Board of Nursing was established in 1911 to regulate nursing practice and education to protect the public’s health, safety and well-being. The board examines, licenses and renews licenses of qualified Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses; certifies nursing assistants and establishes standards for their training and certification; licenses nurse practitioners and grants prescriptive and dispensing authority to qualified nurse practitioners and Clinical Nurse Specialists; licenses Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists and Clinical Nurse Specialists; prescribes essential curricula and standards for nursing education programs; surveys and approves nursing education programs which meet board standards; and investigates complaints about nurses and nursing assistants to determine if there have been violations to laws or standards.
Members are appointed by the governor for three-year terms. License fees finance all board programs.
