Thank you for your interest in our Pre-Nursing Program and School of Nursing. To schedule your personal tour of our beautiful campus, or for more information about the program, please contact Bianca Buscemi in our Admissions Department.
Admission to the Concordia University Texas School of Nursing is highly competitive. While pre-nursing students who take most of the nursing prerequisite courses at Concordia (or at a college/university in the Concordia University System) are given preference, they still must meet the minimum overall GPA and natural science GPA required for admission into the School of Nursing.
The baccalaureate program in nursing at Concordia University Texas is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing education http://www.aacn.nche.edu/ccne-accreditation
Concordia's School of Nursing is approved by the Texas Board of Nursing. Graduates are eligible to appy for licensure as a Registered Nurse (RN) in Texas after passing the NCLEX-RN examination.
For admissions information, including requirements, processes, admissions counselor and application deadlines, please visit the School of Nursing Admissions Requirements page.
The pre-nursing sequence consists of required courses in the sciences and humanities that provide students a solid foundation for the art and science of caring for others. Within one semester of completing the pre-nursing sequence, students apply for admission to the professional nursing sequence in the School of Nursing.
The School of Nursing has two distinct parts: The Pre-Nursing sequence of courses is taken the freshman and sophomore years; midway through your sophomore year, you may apply for the BSN professional sequence of courses, which is taken during your junior and senior years.
