Today's Registered Nurse is highly skilled and is prepared to function in the roles of provider of care, manager of care, and contributing member of a healthcare team. An RN is accountable for bedside decisions that impact the healthcare outcomes for the patient. The scope of the RN's practice is defined by individual state statutes.
Concorde's Nursing degree program prepares students to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Graduates who pass the NCLEX-RN can enter the healthcare workforce as confident, professional, entry-level registered nurses.
Students are enrolled in general education courses, nursing theory courses, and clinical practice. The nursing courses begin with Foundations courses that introduce students to the practice of nursing, nursing theories, legal and ethical issues in nursing, and basic concepts of patient care. Students then advance through nursing courses that include more complex concepts in patient care and specialty nursing. Graduates are prepared to assume leadership and professional roles related to patient care.
Students in our Nursing program earn their degree in 15 months.*
