The Nursing and Health Sciences Division provides students opportunity to earn certificates or degrees in Nursing and Health Care Administration. In today’s world, health care is exciting and challenging, providing students with many opportunities to impact lives when people are vulnerable and in need of hope.

Health Care Administration prepares graduates to be successful leaders in health care facilities from clinic services and doctor’s offices to major hospital systems. Access, cost and quality health care delivery are explored within a biblical perspective.

The vision of the Nursing programs is to empower nurses to practice nursing as ministry. As a Christ-centered community of learners and scholars who focus on academic excellence and spiritual formation, the mission of the nursing education programs at CCU is to prepare competent, compassionate moral leaders who excel as servants, shepherds, stewards and scholars to impact the profession and the world.  We challenge students to be exceptional nurses and to 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.
