Concordia's Flexible Program

There are two paths through which you can earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) at Concordia. The University offers a traditional, four-year BSN track, where students begin as a Pre-Nursing major and enter the Nursing program their junior year. BSN students benefit from Concordia's on-campus simulation labs and gain experience through clinical rotations around Greater Austin.

Concordia also offers the Accelerated BSN track, which is designed for students who have previous college experience in any field, including those with an associate or bachelor's degree. The 16-month program combines rigorous online coursework with valuable simulation labs and clinical rotations.

Exemplary NCLEX-RN Results

Concordia's Nursing programs prepare students to become highly qualified nurses who are prepared to serve patients well in a variety of clinical settings.

To become a registered nurse (RN), students must pass the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX-RN). Concordia's Nursing students have consistently earned high first-time pass rates on NCLEX-RN. In 2019, Concordia's College of Nursing achieved a first-time NCLEX-RN pass rate of 100 percent.
