Students must also meet the following admission requirements for the RN-BSN program:

  • An associate degree in nursing or diploma in nursing from a nationally accredited program and accredited institution
  • Proof of active unencumbered RN licensure (U.S.)
  • Verification of successful occupational work experience as an RN. Work experience must be a minimum of 1,000 hours in the last three (3) years before admission to Colorado Christian University’s RN to BSN Nursing Program.
  • A completed background check and drug screen through CastleBranch. Use student package code CG84. Fees apply and are the responsibility of the student. The background check must be completed no more than six months prior to the start of nursing courses. Be sure to review the list of disqualifying offenses.

The application process for admission to CCU's RN to BSN program is competitive. Once enrolled in the College of Adult and Graduate Studies, the Student Services Advisor assists the student in the admission and progression process.
