Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program
Concordia University believes in fostering clinical excellence and reflective compassion to prepare nurses who will promote health, offer expert bedside care, and provide leadership within healthcare organizations and the community.
Concordia's nursing program is distinguished by its emphasis on building strong analytical reasoning skills, and all first-year students become proficient in the core nursing procedures. Clinical reasoning and patient care continue to be developed in the second year through plenty of hands-on experience. As a result, our graduates are strong advocates for patients and become healthcare leaders for the transformation of society.
Also fundamental to the Concordia experience is the opportunity to deepen your spiritual roots. As one of Portland's premier nursing schools, Concordia University offers a small, caring community that encourages student and faculty interaction, individualized attention, and spiritual growth. The practice of compassion and Christian service is threaded throughout the curriculum. From the very first course, Concordia's nursing program emphasizes sensitive interpersonal communication that deliberately deepens understanding of the human experience. Students learn to promote health, as well as nurse the sick. Our students succeed because they look beyond the symptoms, the diagnosis, and the therapies to see and know the people who need their care.
