Meeting a need now

Creighton’s College of Nursing is leading the way in an ever-changing field, providing an excellent education and embracing a commitment to service. The school is growing — in Omaha, Phoenix and Grand Island — but our growth remains forever rooted in the values on which we were founded.

You can make a gift to support the College of Nursing through scholarships, faculty development or a general fund that meets the college's greatest and most immediate needs. 

College of Nursing

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


student-to-faculty ratio

More attention dedicated to every student.


success rate

About 99% of BSN alumni are employed, pursuing an advanced degree or doing volunteer work within six months of graduation.


first-time pass rate

First-time pass rate over the past five years for traditional BSN students at Creighton (compared to the national average of 83.8%).

Today, there are nearly 9,000 Creighton nursing alumni making a difference in the world.

And we mean to make thousands more.

You can help us get there. Together, we can form future leaders in the transformative tradition of a Jesuit education.

I am truly thankful for the discoveries I’ve made and the knowledge I’ve gained. It’s more than I could have imagined.”
