    CCU’s MSN program offers specialty emphasis tracks in the high demand fields of Nursing Education and Clinical Care Management in Adult/Geriatric.

    Master of Science in Nursing (MSN)

    Classes Start in January 2015

    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.

  • MSN Specialty Emphasis Tracks

    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.

    MSN in Nursing Education

    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.

    MSN Clinical Care Management in Adult/Geriatric

    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.

    Benefits of the MSN Program at CCU

    • Students have opportunities throughout the coursework to develop specialized nursing competency with a biblical worldview perspective.
    • The MSN program utilizes national accreditation standards to help prepare graduates for national certification.
    • The coursework integrates faith, learning, and living with emphasis on Christian nursing theory, moral leadership, and spiritual care.
    • The online format enables nurses to earn their MSN right in their home community, and to collaborate with other nurses throughout the country.
