What to Expect

Concordia's online MSN program is offered through our sister campus in Mequon, Wisconsin. Choose between our Master of Science in nursing or our Post-BSN to DNP pathways in order to advance your career and become a nurse practitioner in a primary care setting. Your academic advisor will work with you to create a personalized progression plan after you’ve applied and been accepted. Students are required to attend a one-day, face-to-face orientation at the beginning of the program. Our orientation is an important aspect of the otherwise online MSN program allowing you to network, meet your instructors, and meet the nursing cohort you’ll be working alongside throughout the program. The subsequent courses are entirely online in either an 8- or 16-week format.

Click on the “Progression Plans” tab above to see examples of our full- and part-time course projection options.

Students are required to complete 720 hours of clinical hours within a primary-care clinic setting. If your current employer meets Concordia’s credential requirements, you may complete your practicum where you work. We do have a review process for clinical site placements, but ultimately students are responsible for finding their own preceptors.

Concordia is about more than just advancing your professional values-we're about collaborating, communicating, and translating scholarship into practice. Our MSN program will ground you holistically, increase your knowledge of healthcare, and allow you to continually enhance patient care, giving you the ability to excel in the top tier of nursing. When you finish, you'll be ready to help others in ways you never foresaw.
