Concordia's accelerated nursing program is the fastest path to your career as a licensed registered nurse.
This 16-month program of study for students who have already completed a bachelor's degree leads to a major in nursing. Upon completion of the program, you will be eligible to take the Nursing Candidate Licensure Examination (NCLEX) and become a licensed registered nurse (R.N.).
All clinical experiences are scheduled by faculty. There is no added stress of looking for your own clinical sites to complete program requirements.
Gain nearly 800 hours of clinical experience during the course of the program.
All program graduates have been employed following graduation.
I graduated from NDSU with a degree in respiratory care. After working as an RRT for the last four years, I decided I wanted to become more involved in patient care. I look forward to continuing my education and growth in my career as a nurse in the ICU. I plan to continue my schooling to become a CRNA and hopefully work with a population of underserved individuals.
