Nursing Education Center

On April 12th, 2017 Concordia University unveiled a new Nursing Skills Center at Center at 9600 SW Barnes Road in Portland, Ore. adjacent to Providence St. Vincent Medical Center.

The new facility is specifically designed to support Concordia University’s new accelerated bachelor of science in nursing (ABSN) program, which expands the university’s decade-long track record of graduating caring and competent nurses with a heart for service.
The new 11,980 sq. ft. facility includes large lab spaces, two simulation rooms, with high-tech medical mannequins that simulate real patient conditions, an observation room, student collaboration space, faculty offices and conference rooms. It will house students enrolled in the ABSN program, a 16-month option for students who qualify.


Faculty, Staff, and Students permitted to access the building can do so using their CU Issued ID card! If you have an ID card, please reach contract our support team by stopping by the Hagen Info Desk or emailing support@cu-portland.edu for access.

If you do not have an ID card, please stop by the Hagen Info Desk to receive one OR coordinate with the Skill Center Coordinator to receive one if you are unable to come to the Holman Campus. (please plan ahead if this is the case as it may take a few business days to process)
