Accreditation

The baccalaureate program at Concordia University Texas is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. Concordia is a member of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. Concordia's School of Nursing is approved by the Texas Board of Nursing.

Admissions Information

For admissions information, including requirements, processes, admissions counselor and application deadlines, please visit the School of Nursing Admissions Requirement page.

Course Information

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