Our vision is to equip the next generation of Christian nurse leaders worldwide. We challenge students to become exceptionally compassionate and competent nurse leaders who impact their world and transform health care through the uniqueness of Christ-inspired nursing practice.

Nursing is an exciting and challenging profession. The art and science of nursing blends intellectual inquiry, evidence-based practice, and advanced technology with the heart and essence of care. Nursing is a sacred profession. No other health care provider has the opportunity to care for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of people when they are suffering and in pain. 

Consistent with the mission and purpose of the University, the CCU Nursing Program comprises a Christ-centered community of learners and scholars who focus on academic excellence and professionalism through the integration of faith, learning, and practice. The nursing education program at CCU prepares competent professionals who excel in compassionate care, spiritual care, cultural humility, and global engagement. The program embraces the truth of Scripture as the foundation for those who are called to the nursing profession and grow in their knowledge of nursing as ministry.
