Concordia University, St. Paul, Adult BSN

  1. I'm looking to apply to Concordia University's (Adult) BSN program in St. Paul. Just wondering if anyone had any insight on it.

    FYI: I'm a returning student with a bachelor's degree. The BSN program accepts returning students and categorizes them as Adult learners instead of freshman standing, hence the title. I believe adult learners and freshman students will be taking classes together in the undergraduate program though.

    Do you mean their newer pre-licensure BSN program or the RN to BSN program? I'm assuming you mean the pre-licensure one, and if thats true I just got accepted to the program and could answer question up to that point! But I haven't started yet so I couldn't offer to much in terms of what the actual courses are like. I would also go to an info session if you can - you get to tour their labs & classrooms and also get a detailed course plan & info on the application process. Let me know if you have any specific questions!

    Do you know anything about the length and cost of the program, I am not getting a straight answer from them.

    As far as I'm aware, both versions of the pre-licensure nursing program (adult vs. traditional, as they offer both) are 6 semesters of year-round study after you're done with pre-reqs. Now as far as cost goes that I'm not 100% sure on that, as its different for the two different program tracks I believe (again, the adult vs. traditional options). According to their website, the adult-undergrad track is $420 per gen-ed credit, and $700 per nursing credit. From what I've seen of the program course schedule, you can expect to take between 10 to 15 nursing credits a semester (with some gen-eds sprinkled in, depending on how much you already have done). The traditional track follows CSP's overall tuition/cost structure (which can be found on the website) with an additional $1500 nursing fee per semester. Now, don't quote me on all that, as thats just what I've found through the website - I haven't actually gotten my own bill so I can't speak from direct experience on it.
    I would go to an info session if you can! They offer them periodically (check the website) and when I went to one several months ago they covered exact cost & the specific semester/course progression for the entire 6 semesters amongst other things.
    So in short, its a relatively spendy program (but still loads cheaper than the UofM or St. Kates) but since you're in it year-round, you finish & can get into the workforce quicker.
