Concordia Texas ABSN Track Curriculum

You can earn a 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 ABSN@CTX.

Once admitted, students are required to complete 63 credit hours, 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.
