Grand Canyon University's College of Nursing and Health Care Professions has a 25-year history of providing outstanding education. Students who plan to become professional registered nurses (RNs) can enter GCU's nursing program as freshmen to begin the pre-requisites or enter the program later with transfer hours. They will earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree and be prepared for an exciting nursing career.
Our traditional BSN nursing program includes five semesters of clinical coursework to develop the student's skills from the beginning healthcare level to the professional level and to instill and develop leadership skills appropriate to the role of the nurse in today's health care system.
As a result of rigorous training and hard work, GCU students have an exceptional record of success on the NCLEX-RN licensure examination. While Grand Canyon University cannot guarantee employment after graduation, traditionally our graduates have been highly recruited by health care facilities.
One of the main reasons physicians' offices and hospitals value GCU's nursing program is the direct and immediate applicability of the course curriculum. As a GCU nursing student, you are continually asked to make a connection between what is learned, its relevance and its application to your job as a nurse. You can apply the knowledge and skills you're learning directly to your nursing job, so your employer can reap the benefits of your degree sooner.
Employers regard our pre-medical and nursing programs as among the very best. Many of our graduates are accepted into graduate medical and research programs at some of the most prestigious universities in the nation.
