So incredibly frustrated. We just got word that Concordia University in Portland is closing at the end of this semester. I assume that nursing credits are non-transferrable, so this basically means that all nursing students there who wouldn't be graduating at the end of this semester have to find somewhere else to start over???

That is not true. There is nothing wrong with Concordia's accreditation, so if it came down to it, all credits are transferable. In fact they have one of the higher NCLEX pass rates in Oregon. The ABSN program itself, 100%, opening as a brand new program. The nursing program has been very successful and what is going on with the rest of the school is not the program's doing. They are still working out the details of having another school take over or teach out programs with other schools such as OHSU, Linfield, and UP. We have very high hopes that the nursing students will be able to continue and complete their degrees.

I’m so sorry this happening to you and the announcement came without a transition plan in place. If you have federal loans, you can look at the closed school discharge. It is really tough to transfer nursing credits and challenging to find space in a cohort. I think your best bet is to stay in close communication with Concordia and hope they can negotiate with programs. But I would consider pleading your case directly to other programs. I also recommend that you compile all your course syllabi, clinical evals, and if possible, major assignments. Hang in there, this is a major curve ball - but you will make it through!
