Health & Educational Consultants Nursing Re-Entry Program is Oregon State Board of Nursing approved, and upon satisfactory completion of all components of the program and OAR requirements, full RN or LPN licensure will be granted by the Oregon State Board of Nursing. We congratulate you on the decision to resume your career and look forward to assisting with your re-entry into the profession of nursing!

It is important to note that you must complete ALL clinical and study guide objectives in order to meet the criteria for full re-licensure. Upon completion of all requirements, an RN or LPN license will be issued from the Oregon State Board of Nursing. Please review FAQs or Program Costs if you have questions or contact us at or (503)352-4969. We will be happy to discuss your educational plan with you and are committed to your success and facilitating your learning.


The theory portion of the program consists of 22 study guides and 5 examinations. This is a limited enrollment program and you may progress through this portion at your own pace but the entire program should be completed within 12 months in order to avoid an additional $750 fee for the second year. We will discuss the study material and support your progress frequently via phone, e-mail, or fax.


The clinical experience portion of the program occurs after successful completion of the study guides and will require from 1 to 3 months. The clinical experience will be at least 160 hours of supervised clinical practice in one agency or facility and is subject to agency and RN preceptor availability. We cannot guarantee clinical placement. Finding a clinical placement for you will be a cooperative effort between yourself and us. You will need to obtain permission from the director of nurses or the director of education prior to your clinical experience. During the clinical portion of the program, you will be practicing with your limited license. Nurses who have not practiced for a long period of time may be required to complete additional clinical hours.
