Here are a few great ways you can support the College of Nursing. To learn more, contact EmilyTiensvold@creighton.edu.
Scholarships allow our students to experience a transformative education with a hands-on approach and expert faculty guidance. Scholarships also increase our diversity, with students from many backgrounds training to become leaders in health care.
Through endowed chairs and research grants, donors help the College of Nursing continue to lead the way in clinical care research — creating more opportunities and adding new knowledge to the world.
Center for Faculty Innovation, Research, and Education (FIRE)
FIRE ensures that nursing research continues to take place in a clinical setting, with real patients and real outcomes. The center elevates the culture of research within the College of Nursing, securing funding, accessing experts and attracting talented new hires.
Global scholarship, community outreach and education
With donor support, many of our students serve and study abroad, in the Dominican Republic, China and many other countries, absorbing various cultures and learning how to best provide holistic health care to diverse populations.
Support the simulation lab
A strong simulation lab enhances students’ clinical nursing skills. With state-of-the-art equipment and expertly trained faculty, we provide a hands-on learning environment to form future leaders in health care.
Scholarship and programmatic opportunities
Through scholarships and programmatic opportunities, our students earn their degree at one of three campuses, where they study alongside a variety of interdisciplinary colleagues, treat diverse populations and work with some of the nation’s largest health care systems.
The Laura and Dan Monen Healthcare Clinic
Through our partnership with the Laura and Dan Monen Healthcare Clinic, our nursing students serve local immigrants, refugees and other vulnerable communities. Creighton students and faculty volunteer their services to provide free urgent care to our most underserved populations.
A commitment to educational excellence
“With your support, we will continue our commitment to educational excellence, to our Jesuit, Catholic traditions, to our students and alumni.”
— Catherine Todero, PhD, RN, FAAN, BSN’72, Dean of the College of Nursing and Vice Provost of Health Sciences campuses
Leading the way
Creighton’s College of Nursing has a reputation for leading the way of an ever-changing field, providing an excellent education and embracing a commitment to service.
As our students pursue spiritually fulfilling careers in a world direly in need of nurses, much will change but never this: a Creighton nurse sees and cares for every patient as a whole person.

Now serving students and communities from three difference campuses, the College of Nursing is seeing tremendous growth and success.

FOR AND WITH OTHERS
“I love it at Creighton. People care about each other here, and they teach you how to care for others the best way you can.
“The support of donors makes the Creighton experience possible — for me and for thousands of other students. Without my scholarship aid, I don’t think I’d be at Creighton. It eases the stress on my family and makes this possible. The least I can do, in return, is work hard and do my best.”
— Robyn Acob, College of Nursing
