I heard that the Concordia ABSN program had some major growing pains when it first started out: disorganized, clinical rotations at daycares, etc. I was wondering if it has gotten any better. 

Also, what is the religious aspect like? I know there’s some REL classes required by the university but is religion woven into the nursing material as well? To say I’m not very religious is an understatement. I want to know if I can stomach it.  Thanks!

Hello! I'm currently in the program right and I can tell you that the program has improved a lot since it first started. As for the religion course, it depends on which one you take. There's one that gears more toward nursing and the other doesn't. You do not have to be religious to do well in the class. Feel free to DM if you have more questions.

@tlc_nurse1 I am considering this program and was wondering if you could share a little more of your experience and perspective. I did try to DM you and it wouldn't let me for some reason. How do you find the online component to be? I have heard some not so great things about clinical rotations as well, has that aspect improved? Thank you very much for your insight 🙂

@student55 I think the online component is manageable. There's are a lot of people in my cohort who are working full to part-time and they seem to be doing fine in the course. Most modules starts on Sunday and ends on Saturday, which is when your homework is due. I think the clinical rotation experience depends on your clinical instructor. I had an AMAZING instructor therefore I had a really good experience. Some of my classmates didn't have a good instructor so they didn't have a pleasant experience. Since the didactics are online, there's alot of self-taught that goes on. Sometimes the professors hold collabs (online Q&A) to help clarify concepts. I think that the program has improved tremendously since they've been accredited but there is still work that needs to be done.
