Nursing Program Profile


The undergraduate program of study in nursing will prepare you for an exciting career as a professional nurse. The curriculum is fully integrated with the arts and sciences and will provide you with all of the tools you will need to practice in the fast-paced and ever-changing health care system. You will experience health care at the cutting edge as you learn nursing skills in our laboratory and develop hands-on practice in hospitals, nursing homes, mental health and visiting nurse facilities in the Westchester County and New York metropolitan areas. At Concordia, students of nursing have the opportunity to complete their program of study in three-and-a-half years. Classes are small, the faculty, nationally-known, and nursing education is delivered with all the personal touches for which Concordia College is known. The Nursing program is part of the Division of Health and Human Services.

Our Nursing Students Value the Whole Person

Nursing education at Concordia College utilizes knowledge from liberal arts and sciences to provide nurses with a well-rounded educational foundation. We respect high-touch as much as we value high-tech and we are intentional about making sure our graduates value the whole person—their culture, their spirituality, their humanity. Graduates from our program are encouraged to embrace life-long learning and continue their nursing education long after they leave our campus. The nursing curriculum at Concordia College-New York can be completed in three-and-a-half years.
