Concordia University’s Accelerated BSN Program for Non-Nurses in Portland

Oregon, like much of the West Coast, is facing some of the largest shortages of BSN-educated nurses in the country. Fortunately, it’s possible to earn your Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree in just 16 with Concordia University’s Accelerated BSN program in Portland, which was designed for students with at least 60 non-nursing college credits or a previous degree. Our ABSN program combines the convenience and flexibility of online coursework with relevant, hands-on labs and clinicals so you graduate prepared to take the NCLEX-RN® and to make a difference.

Our 16-month nursing program in Portland, Concordia ABSN, offers tomorrow’s nurse leaders:

  • An academically rigorous curriculum consisting of online coursework, high-tech skills and simulation labs, and real-life clinical experience
  • An emphasis on evidence-based care and serving the needs of an increasingly diverse health care population
  • Three starts each year — in January, May and September — at two Portland ABSN learning sites
  • Thorough preparation to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN®)
