Online RN to BSN Degree Completion

The online RN to BSN degree completion program option is designed for licensed RNs with an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) who want to complete their nursing bachelor's degree. You may transfer up to 90 credits hours toward CCU's 120 credit hour BSN. The remaining 30 credits include 10 online classes that can be completed in just over one year.

Master of Science in Nursing Degree

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) is designed for nurses who already have a bachelor's degree and want to gain advanced nursing leadership skills in order to expand their career options and earning potential. The 39-credit nursing program offers you two areas of emphasis — Nursing Education and Clinical Care Management in Adult/Geriatric — that are in high demand. The MSN program is available online, and may be completed in just over two years of full-time study through one of the best Christian nursing schools in Colorado.

Doctor of Nursing Practice

The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) at CCU is designed for nurses — nurse practitioners, nurse administrators and healthcare leaders, clinical nurse specialists, and nurse educators — who already have an MSN. The online DNP at CCU is a practice-focused doctorate degree that will prepare experts in specialized advanced nursing practice. Graduates will be able to apply credible research and translate evidence-based practice into improved health outcomes. The 30-credit hour doctoral nursing program provides development of advanced competencies for increasingly complex practice and enhanced leadership to strengthen healthcare delivery.
