Take a trip to Oregon and you'll see why its scenic views take many a breath away. Lush valleys, tree-topped mountains, craggy volcanoes, and urban skylines all mix to form a stunning hybrid of big city life and rural getaway. The local wineries, waterways that are a kayaker's haven, shopping districts, and famous museums all bring in droves of visitors every year. Residents living in Oregon enjoy the blend of urban and suburban living, as well as the moderate cost of living. Workers in the state earn about the average of workers in other states across the country, making the Beaver State an affordable and charming place to live.

The biggest industries in Oregon are agriculture and, surprisingly, wine production. The state's special soil and climate enable it to grow the same types of grapes as those used by wineries in France, producing exquisite domestic wines that are sure to please even the most sophisticated of palates. Hazelnuts are another big product of Oregon. In fact, more than 90% of the state's hazelnut supply comes right out of the hazelnut farms in the state. If it were not for Oregon, many delicious chocolate bars would be missing that distinctive hazelnut flavor that so many people crave. Also, though it does not receive the same celebratory status as the Beaver State's hazelnuts and wine, the health care industry is holding strong. Those looking to launch their nursing careers in Oregon will find the best employment opportunities in bigger cities like Portland as opposed to more rural areas. To become a registered nurse (RN) in Oregon, one must obtain a diploma, associate, or bachelor's degree from an accredited and approved nursing program. Then, prospective nurses must also successfully complete the NCLEX-RN examination to obtain a nursing license. Only then will they be allowed to legally practice.
