What to Expect

Our 14-month accelerated BSN program is built on a Christian foundation, which means you will be set apart as the nurse who cares for their patients and coworkers in mind, body, and spirit. You'll have unprecedented support throughout the program from the others in your cohort to our highly qualified faculty. The curriculum has been specially designed in order to prepare you to hit the ground running as a registered nurse. You'll be immersed in content, with clinical courses taken concurrently with the corresponding theory course. Web-based resources are used side-by-side with clinical, lab, and simulation experiences. Our ABSN is the complete package. So if you're serious about streamlining your next career move while promoting active, engaged learning, Concordia is serious about helping you get there.
