While becoming a nurse is a calling, sometimes life can force you to put your passion on hold. However, it doesn’t have to be put on hold forever. If nursing is your true calling, there are opportunities that allow you to pick up where you left off.
Concordia University-Portland Accelerated BSN
You don’t have to wait to become a nurse. If you’re thinking about becoming a nurse, you could fast-track your nursing degree through our Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN). Concordia University-Portland’s accelerated nursing track allows you to earn your BSN degree without a prior bachelor’s degree or health care experience.
As a student of Concordia’s ABSN, you will be empowered to succeed through experiential learning and supportive faculty – all of which prepare you for a fulfilling nursing career. After as few as 16 months of accelerated nursing study, you could graduate with an BSN degree, ready to sit for the NCLEX licensure exam.
The curriculum is blended, meaning it combines online nursing coursework with onsite instruction through:
- Skills labs where you’ll start to get comfortable with nursing equipment.
- Simulation labs where you’ll run through possible clinical scenarios.
- Clinical placements where you’ll care for real patients under clinical faculty.
If you are ready to start your nursing school journey, please contact an enrollment specialist at 866.892.1562 and learn more about our Accelerated BSN. If it turns out that you don’t have enough credits to qualify for our ABSN track, be sure to ask about our Pre-Nursing program.
