Incoming Students

Freshmen students interested in completing the Traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree will first enter the Pre-Nursing Program and complete the nursing prerequisite courses before applying to the School of Nursing. All Pre-Nursing students must be advised by their faculty advisor from the School of Natural and Applied Sciences to ensure enrollment in the correct Pre-Nursing courses.

Students transferring from another regionally accredited institution must also complete the prerequisite courses before applying to the School of Nursing.  We do accept incoming transfer students directly into the School of Nursing if prerequisite requirements are met. All incoming transfer students must be advised by an Admissions Counselor.

Current Concordia Students

Concordia students can apply for the Nursing Program during the last semester of prerequisite courses. Students should work with their School of Natural and Applied Sciences faculty advisor to ensure they are on track. To complete the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program, you must fulfill certain Pre-Nursing requirements.
