"Nursing is an requires an exclusive devotion, as hard a preparation, as any painter's or sculptor's work; for what is having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God's spirit?"
  -Florence Nightingale, celebrated English nurse, writer, and statistician (1820-1910)

The Health Sciences major at Colorado Christian University gives you a foundation for professional or graduate study in several health related fields including nursing, physical therapy, physician’s assistant, and pharmaceuticals, among others. All CCU majors are required to take general education courses in the arts, humanities, and social sciences (which is also advised by the American Medical Association). Whether you plan to go into nursing, dentistry, or medical imaging, you'll be prepared both scientifically and culturally to engage with your patients.

For students planning to continue on to graduate school, it is important to be aware of the health sciences course sequence in order to stay on track and graduate in four years. See a sample four-year plan.

It is certainly important to teach students the facts from the textbook and to give them a common language with which to engage with other professionals. CCU, however, goes a crucial step beyond that. At CCU, we look through the lens of a faith perspective to challenge or explain these concepts, leaving students with a critical and faithful understanding of the material.
