Nursing Program

The University of Colorado College of Nursing (CU) and Pueblo Community College (PCC) both now offer online RN-BSN programs for SW Colorado residents who want to get their Bachelor’s degree in Nursing (BSN). For those seeking the two-year degree through PCC’s local campuses, Southwest Colorado Community College (SCCC), located in Durango and Mancos, students can choose to advance their nursing education following completion of their program by enrolling in either CU or SCCC for their RN-BSN degree.

University of Colorado College of Nursing now offers an Early Decision Option RN-BS that allows ADN students a seamless transition to their online RN-BSN program. ADN students can apply and receive acceptance to CU while finishing their associates degree and be ready to start BSN course immediately following completion of their ADN program. For details including prerequisites and the application process, visit their website.

For licensed RNs already practicing, the online RN-to-BSN option allows nurses to earn a bachelor’s degree in 1-2 years, while continuing to work in their field of practice.
