Accelerated Nursing Program Overview

No matter the reason, if you have the drive to become a nurse, our accelerated nursing program in Portland can help you achieve your goal. There is three start dates per year and we do not require prior nursing experience or a nursing-related degree. All you need to start the process is the passion to become a nurse and health care leader.

How the Accelerated BSN Program Works

Our full-time Accelerated BSN program follows a rigorous, 16-month curriculum comprising online didactic coursework, hands-on experiential learning and clinical rotations.

  • Online accelerated nursing courses delivered via an interactive e-Learning platform.
  • Hands-on learning inside our state-of-the-art advanced nursing simulation lab.
  • Diverse, real-world clinical practice in local area health care facilities.
  • Dedicated faculty to offer guidance and support throughout the program.

Due to the intensity of the program, we recommend that students view their accelerated nursing education as a full-time job. The program requires you to be dedicated and self-motivated, but Concordia will help you keep pace every step of the way, from admission to graduation.
