Concordia Texas ABSN Curriculum

You can earn an accelerated BSN from Concordia University Texas in as few as 16 months by leveraging your past education. Students are required to have completed a minimum of 60 credits either through your prior education or through completion of required prerequisites online at Concordia University Texas prior to enrolling in the ABSN program.

Once admitted, students are required to complete 70 credit hours in the nursing program, which includes online didactic coursework, hands-on learning at our high-tech nursing site, and clinical practice at local healthcare facilities.

Our courses are broken down into four 16-week semesters that provide you with exposure to concepts such as cultural diversity, spiritual care, and ethics, and evidence-based practice. But our academic foundation goes beyond other programs, developing Christian leaders by providing students with unique tools, like our mission practicum, so students learn how to become a nurse and a healthcare leader.
