Message from the Program Director
The College of Health and Human Services at Concordia University–Portland is excited to provide individuals, like you, the opportunity to change careers and advance in the health care industry through our Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.
As the population ages, there will be ever greater demand for healthcare professionals, specifically nurses. It is our responsibility to maintain that demand by providing more educational options, like our Accelerated BSN program that combines online coursework combined with experiential learning.
Through our successful nursing programs, we can help prepare and inspire you to become more than a nurse – but also an influential health care leader who will transform the wellbeing of the communities in which we live.
As a Concordia-educated nurse, you’ll possess the skills necessary to be a caring professional prepared for service. 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 in your personal life.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Concordia family!
