At the University of Colorado Denver, College of Nursing, we strive to offer pioneering, nationally ranked nursing programs that empower prospective students like yourself to achieve your career goals.
With a rich tradition of innovation, our school has helped shape important milestones in the nursing profession. We are the birthplace of the nurse practitioner and caring movements, and one of the first schools in the country to offer a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program. Our distinguished faculty has made significant contributions to school-based health care and nursing informatics, as well as research into pain management, rural health, and pediatric nursing. As we look to the future, we are advancing the development of additional research strengths in public health, health care of children, those with chronic illness, and clinical health care. Our strong faculty practices with children, pregnant women and their families, adults, and elders allow our students to combine world-class research with real-world education. We also are known for our pioneering efforts in rural health care.
Prospective students, we want you to know that the atmosphere here is both friendly and future-oriented. You will be joining a community of distinguished faculty and students who will play a major role in shaping your own personal future and the future of nursing. You will have the opportunity to interact closely with faculty and students from the University of Colorado Denver, Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Physical Therapy and Pharmacy, to enjoy all the benefits of our new, state-of-the-art Anschutz Medical Campus.
If you're looking for a nationally ranked school that has the innovative curriculum, renowned research faculty and breadth of programs to take you wherever your career ambitions are pushing you, we invite you to apply for admission. And let us help you, "Find your future here!"
