  • Welcome from the Dean
  • Resources

This is an exciting time for nursing education! I am thrilled that Colorado Technical University offers many innovative ways for faculty and students to collaborate as a team while delivering quality, real-world nursing education.

Health care in the 21st century is changing rapidly and nurses are on the front lines of that transformation. Education is crucial in ensuring that nurses have the skills and information they need to lead change and to be effective advocates for patient care. One leading organization, the Institute of Medicine (IOM), is advocating for the number of nurses with baccalaureate degrees to increase from 50% to 80% by 2020, and for nurses to continue on to receive graduate degrees.2

At CTU, we continue to expand our programs and concentrations based on recommendations from our advisory board and nursing industry employers and experts. In 2015, CTU’s RN-BSN degree program received a 5-year accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), which affirms that CTU’s nursing curriculum, teaching practices, and program outcomes meet the CCNE’s rigorous standards for quality, effective nursing education. Our Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree program is structured to help nurses navigate current industry challenges and emerging trends in nursing.

CTU faculty, staff, and I are here to help guide you as you advance your expertise and realize your professional goals. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
