Program Overview

Have you recently discovered a passion for nursing, but you feel stuck because you have a bachelor’s degree in business, education, or any other number of fields? Don’t toss up your hands and give up! At Concordia, if you already have a bachelor’s degree, you can get your BSN in 14 months! You get the full treatment: access to our amazing faculty, experiences in clinical, lab and simulation situations, and our incredible curriculum, which builds on a Christian foundation with web-based resources and simulations that promote active, engaged learning.

What to Expect

If you choose to jump start your BSN at Concordia, you won’t be doing it alone. Students who progress through this program are part of a cohort. They are immersed in the content, one course at a time, with clinical courses taken concurrently with the corresponding theory course. Web-based resources are used side-by-side with clinical, lab, and simulation experiences. This is the complete package. And it only takes a little over a year.

Students are required to live in the Southeastern Wisconsin area for the 14-month program.
