Message from the Assistant Dean

Donna Bachand, Director of Nursing for Concordia PortlandThe College of Health and Human Services at Concordia University is excited to provide individuals, like you, the opportunity to change careers and advance in the health care industry.

The demand for nurses is growing at a rapid rate. At Concordia, we are devoted to providing flexible options to fill this need. Our accelerated BSN program is an exceptional opportunity for those who desire the convenience of online coursework combined with experiential learning. As a Christian university, we have a dual purpose to graduate beginning nurses who are clinically competent but also capable of deep, reflective compassion.

Through our successful nursing programs, we are committed to preparing you to become more than a nurse — but also a health care leader. Our programs and faculty strive to develop students with cultural competence, respectful and caring attitudes, commitment to underserved communities, and strong personal and professional ethics. These qualities will guide your success not only in your nursing career but also in your personal life.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Concordia family!
