College of Nursing Scholarships

Help us continue to form some of the best nurses in the nation.

It all starts with scholarships

When you support nursing scholarships, you help our students manage costs and make ends meet. But more than that, you give them a transformative sense of belonging, purpose and personal growth.

You help us shape a new generation of deeply skilled and service-minded professionals ready to face the future and improve our world.

Tuition alone doesn’t fully cover what it costs to educate our students. In fact, it only covers about two-thirds of it. Most of our students receive financial aid or scholarships. Last year alone, Creighton awarded nearly 1,900 scholarships to students across all schools and colleges.

Making a difference, one Creighton nurse at a time

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.

There are now 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 nursing education.

Make a difference today!

“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
