Compassionate Nurses for a Healthy Future
As one of the area’s premier nursing schools, Concordia offers a small, caring community that encourages student and faculty interaction, individual attention, and spiritual growth. The practice of compassion and Christian service is woven throughout the curriculum. Our nursing students receive invaluable, hands-on preparation with real-world application in a variety of settings. In true Concordia fashion, our students succeed because they look beyond the symptoms, the diagnosis, and the therapies to truly see and know the people they’re caring for. As a result, Concordia nursing graduates are prepared to promote health, offer quality bed-side care, and provide leadership within health care organizations and in the broader community.
Concordia produces some of the most sought-after nurses in the Pacific Northwest. Our graduates have among the highest pass rate of the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) in the state of Oregon. Beyond excellent education, Concordia ensures that compassion, critical thinking, and skill acquisition are emphasized throughout the curriculum.

“I chose Concordia University because of its emphasis on community. The nursing cohorts are small and students form close, supportive relationships. The low student-to-professor ratio gives students ready access to instructors whenever we need support.”
