How the Program Works

CCD students complete 32 credit hours of prerequisite courses. Once you are close to completing courses, you can apply to the program through NursingCAS. Your acceptance at CON is contingent upon the satisfactory completion of the remaining prerequisite courses at CCD.  

Twenty students are accepted into a cohort-based program taken in the first two semesters at CCD. The same 20 students will learn, study, and support each other throughout the program as a cohort. Expert faculty and staff will be available to offer ongoing support and provide the best learning opportunities for successful completion. Credits earned during the last two semesters and the additional prerequisite credits lead you to complete an Associate degree of General Studies.

After graduation from CCD, you will transition to CON to complete coursework during the remaining six semesters. You will receive nursing instruction at the new, state-of-the-art University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, which will encourage and inspire you to reach your highest potential.
