CCU’s MSN program offers specialty emphasis tracks in the high demand fields of Nursing Education and Clinical Care Management in Adult/Geriatric.
The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program at Colorado Christian University is designed for nurses with a bachelor’s degree who are ready to take on greater leadership roles in health care. Recent healthcare reforms and the ongoing shortage of primary care physicians have increased the demand for nurses with master’s degrees who can help fill the gap in meeting the needs of a growing patient population.
CCU’s master’s in nursing offers a unique distinctive program. Our mission is to help our students become exceptionally compassionate and competent nurse leaders who impact their world, and transform health care through the uniqueness of Christ-inspired nursing practice.
To help address the growing demand for expert nurses with a master’s degree, CCU’s MSN program offers you two opportunities for specialization. Both tracks emphasize the core foundations of advanced nursing practice and Christian principles.
The Nursing Education emphasis prepares you to work as a nurse educator in diverse settings such as colleges/universities, hospitals, long-term care, home health/public health, or philanthropic organizations. Courses integrate teaching/learning principles, curriculum design, student assessment, and program evaluation to prepare you to be an innovative change agent while teaching within the academic or health care industry arenas.
The Clinical Care Management in Adult/Geriatric emphasis prepares you to work in diverse settings as a consultant and coordinator of health care for adults/geriatric populations emphasizing clinical prevention and improved health outcomes. This emphasis is a Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) track, which allows you to practice as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse in many states. Courses integrate evidence-based practice, clinical prevention and acute and chronic care management to prepare the graduate nurse to be a change agent while managing adult populations.
