Licensure / Certifications
States have established standards of practice for the nursing profession. While at the present time, we cannot provide a particular state’s educational requirements for licensing, we can assure you that we will provide you with the contact information for the state Board of Nursing for the state in which you are doing study. We are currently not accepting new students from Alaska, Arizona, California, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, South Dakota, Tennessee, or Texas. Additionally, Washington D.C. students are required to do clinicals in Virginia. Concordia University of Wisconsin is approved by the Washington State Nursing Care Quality Assurance Commission to conduct practice experiences in the state of Washington for the MSN/FNP and MSN/AGPCNP program tracks.
