Concordia University-Portland’s accelerated nursing program allows you to earn your BSN degree without a prior bachelor’s degree or health care experience. All you need is the passion to become a nurse.

As a student of Concordia’s ABSN program, you will be empowered to succeed through challenging online coursework, experiential learning and supportive faculty – all of which prepare you to graduate a career-ready nurse.
