Denver College of Nursing serves students, the nursing profession, health care organizations, clients receiving care, and the increasing needs of society for qualified nurses by offering programs for students who seek careers in nursing and other medical fields.
Denver College of Nursing devotes its resources to maintaining quality nursing programs in an environment that focuses on clinical competence across all scopes of practice, and that help develop the technical and thinking skills needed to foster successful careers and a lifetime of continued professional learning.
The programs build on foundations of general education common to nursing education, and all programs meet or exceed common standards for nursing education programs in Colorado.
The nursing programs explore a differentiated practice model that teaches students to maximize their own role development, to seek the opportunity to learn and collaborate effectively with other nurses of differing educational preparations.
The programs integrate holistic health care values with traditional health care values so students can explore the understanding of “whole body wellness” in client care.
Programs are offered to adult students from the economically and ethnically diverse regional community served.
