Creighton Nursing in Phoenix

Creighton Nursing in Phoenix

To help meet the growing demand for well-educated nurses in Arizona, Creighton launched its Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program in Phoenix through a partnership between Creighton University and Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in 2018.

This fully-accredited program is ideal for those who already have a college degree and are looking to earn their BSN via an accelerated, 12-month program. As part of the program, you’ll complete clinical experiences at Dignity Health Phoenix-based hospitals, Valleywise Health and Phoenix Children’s Hospital as well as with other community partners and clinics.

Classes start each August and January in Phoenix.

“This program has a hands-on learning environment that promotes active involvement in the clinical field. The amount of growth I have acquired in one year is directly attributed to the number of practical clinical hours with firsthand experiences.”
— Agustina V. Palmer, January 2021 Cohort
Tyler York
“The BSN faculty team provides individualized attention for each student. For example, I was struggling with test-taking and a faculty member spent hours of her personal time after class tutoring and helping me develop my skills.”
— Tyler York, January 2021 Cohort
Hez Naylor
“Because our class sizes are small, the learning experience is meaningful and personalized. What makes our program unique is that our students learn with supportive faculty who are clinically active and concerned for our students’ well-being.”
— Hez Naylor, MSN, FNP-BC, Senior Nurse Practitioner and Instructor at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center

Ignite Scholars – A Full-Tuition Scholarship for Phoenix Students

Students in the 12-month accelerated BSN program in Phoenix can receive scholarships covering full tuition and fees for the program in exchange for a four-year commitment to working as a nurse in Arizona. 

Nurses play a vital role in the health and well-being of our communities, and the need for them in Arizona is critical as the state’s population continues to grow. Creighton is helping to meet that need and has been awarded funds from the state of Arizona to be used toward tuition for ABSN students in Phoenix.

    Scholarship highlights:

    • Full tuition and fees, if awarded
    • Prerequisites, including bachelor’s degree, must be completed before enrollment
    • Requires a commitment to work for four years (30 hours/week) in the state of Arizona upon graduation
