Today is the start of National #CTEMonth and our opportunity to shine a bright light on all of the amazing Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs at Oregon’s 17 community colleges! This week features health and biomedical sciences. OCCA is asking legislators to support SB523, which would allow the colleges to offer a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree to enable nursing students to easily and affordably move into a BSN program straight from completing an RN program right in their local community college! #orcommcollegecte #whyctematters #CTEWorks See MoreSee Less
