Nursing

BSN Overview

Two very distinct ways are available to obtain a BSN at Concordia. Applicants who are not Registered Nurses may be admitted to the traditional track. This track is a four-year program of study with the two distinct parts listed below. Applicants who are Registered Nurses in Texas or a Compact State may be admitted to the non-traditional track and be awarded credit for previous nursing education. The non-traditional track is offered online.

BSN Traditional 4-Year Track

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:

  1. The Pre-Nursing sequence of courses is taken the freshman and sophomore years.
  2. Midway through your sophomore year, you may apply for the BSN professional sequence of courses, which is taken during your junior and senior years.

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.

Non-Traditional Track
RN to MSN & RN to BSN

Students applying to these programs must have an RN license in Texas or a Compact State. Registered Nurses with a non-nursing bachelor's degree are also eligible to apply. All courses are offered online and designed for the employed RN.
