I'm moving back to the Portland area after 4 years in Wisconsin, where I'm already IN a nursing program. We miss the northwest, so there's no way we won't make this move. I'm aware of some pretty stiff competition for admission to the BSN programs in Portland. I'm a post-bacc student with a 3.9 sciences GPA. I've heard that most programs look positively on older, more mature and previously educated students.
Anyone have info on Concordia's program - good, bad or indifferent - including # of applications to accepted ratios? I asked my current clinical nursing instructor to look at their program based on their website information. She said that they have more of a focus on acute care instead of say, health promotion like my current program. New programs typically have some kinks, but since Concordia is "franchised" in other cities with nursing programs
(there is one in Milwaukee,WI I'm aware of), how could it be a poor program?
Thanks in advance for your replies....
