COLLEGE OF NURSING AND HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONS
The College of Nursing and Health Care Professions has a nearly 35-year tradition of preparing students to fill evolving healthcare roles as highly qualified professionals educated in direct care, management, health education and administrative disciplines. As one of the top nursing schools in Arizona, we offer a wide range of programs, from a pre-licensure degree program to the registered nurse (RN) to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and RN to Master of Science in Nursing (MSN). We also offer healthcare degree programs from our college of healthcare professions, as well as college of nursing programs online.
Healthcare organizations value graduates from our healthcare and nursing programs in Arizona because our curriculum connects classroom theories to working scenarios through many modalities: hands-on practice, online and lab simulations and in-depth peer discussions exploring best practices.
Grand Canyon University's (GCU) in-class and online environments advance critical thinking, professionalism, accountability and ethical decision-making by applying science, health and nursing theories, along with a foundation of Christian values.
