Concordia College (Department of Nursing)





The pre-nursing program is open to all high school graduates and college students wishing to pursue a nursing major. To enter the pre-nursing program, students must be admitted to Concordia College.

The professional nursing program begins the spring semester of the sophomore year. Because state regulations require a specific student-faculty ratio in the clinical practicum, enrollment in the professional nursing program is limited and based on available resources and clinical placement availability.

Therefore, admission is competitive and based on all of the following: (1) GPA (see recommended curriculum), (2) completion of the prerequisite courses with a passing grade, (3) eligibility for sophomore standing, (4) personal references, (5) impromptu essay, (6) a personal interview (upon request), and (7) submission of the completed application materials. Preference will be given to students who have attended Concordia College.

For admission into the professional nursing program, a supplemental application must be submitted by April 15 of the freshman year to the Nursing Department. A minimum GPA of 2.7 (4.0=A) is required in all post-high school work to apply. Application forms may be obtained in the Nursing Department or by calling (218) 299-3879. Students will be notified of their admission status in May.

Students currently enrolled at Concordia in the pre-nursing program should consult with their nursing faculty adviser prior to the application deadline.
