Nursing Program Overview

The faculty of the Nursing Program at Colorado Northwestern Community College (CNCC) believe that nursing is both an art and a science. Nursing demands an interest and aptitude for science, well developed critical thinking and analytical skills, technical expertise, compassion, and the ability to provide human comfort and kindness. Nurses play a vital role in the health and safety of our community.

Our mission is to provide a quality nursing education that prepares the graduate to become a competent member of the nursing profession who delivers nursing care to a diverse population in an ever-changing healthcare environment in a variety of healthcare settings.

The Nursing Program at CNCC is located on the Craig Campus and offers an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Nursing degree program. Following completion of the program, graduates are eligible to take the National Council of State Board of Nursing Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) to become licensed to practice as a Registered Nurse (RN).

CNCC also offers an affiliated Nurse Aide course. Following completion of the 4 credit classroom / lab and concurrent 1 credit clinical courses, students become eligible to take a Nurse Aide Certification Exam to become a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA).

Each program is designed to meet the needs and educational requirements of diverse students interested in a career in nursing and workforce demands.
