Nursing is both a scientific discipline and a sacred calling. No other profession has the opportunity to touch people’s lives physically, emotionally, and spiritually like nursing.

Meet the Dean of Nursing and Health Professions

Nursing is an exciting and challenging profession. The art and science of nursing blends intellectual inquiry, evidence-based practice, advanced technology and the heart of caring into an art and science.

Nursing is a sacred profession. Hospitals are filled with holy moments. No other healthcare provider has the opportunity to care for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of people when they are suffering and in pain.

At Colorado Christian University, nursing is a ministry of compassionate care for the whole person, in response to God’s grace.
