Nurse Staffing

The Oregon Nurse Staffing Collaborative

The Oregon nurse staffing law was created to ensure that every Oregonian receives safe nursing care through appropriate nurse staffing levels when hospitalized in an acute care hospital. The Oregon Nurse Staffing Collaborative (ONSC) was formed to provide a safe table where nurses share best practices, evaluate staffing challenges and opportunities, and create new methods of nurse staffing that strengthen the partnership between nurses, patients and families and other health care team members.
