Find Your Purpose

If your calling is to become a nurse, you owe it to yourself to pursue the profession. And there’s no better place to earn a BSN than Grand Canyon University. For more than 70 years, we’ve provided students a transformative education grounded in our strong Christian mission. You can expect to graduate from our university as a competent, compassionate nurse who lives with purpose and serves with integrity.

Kristin decided to become a nurse after working in social work for several years. She was concerned about going back to a campus where everyone was younger than she. Kristin found our ABSN program for career changers, and our staff gave her the boost of confidence she needed to reinvent her career.

"Everything you need to be a nurse is here. Utica College is organized and the faculty is here to support you. They all want you to make it through."

– Kristin K., ABSN Student, December 2016 Graduate
