You want a top-rated health sciences education that gives you access to diverse patient populations. You also want to serve the underserved. Creighton University’s regional campuses and innovative distance pathway programs allow you to achieve your goals while helping those in need. Your student experience could even lead to direct job placement after you graduate. Beyond Omaha, Creighton has campuses in the following cities.

Phoenix, Arizona

Creighton’s new Health Sciences – Phoenix campus is the only Catholic medical school campus west of Omaha. It will feature a full four-year medical school and physician assistant, nursing, pharmacy and physical and occupational therapy programs. When opened in 2021, nearly 900 students are expected to be trained in these programs, invigorating Arizona’s health infrastructure.

Grand Island, Nebraska

Creighton University College of Nursing offers one of the nation’s most successful and longest running accelerated nursing programs for a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). Our fully accredited program recognizes and builds on your past education and experiences. Program participants who have at least a bachelor’s degree in another discipline can earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree in just 12 months. If you’re a nursing student with a passion for serving rural communities, consider pursuing a nursing degree at our Grand Island Campus located at CHI Health St. Francis. Classes start each August.

Denver, Colorado

The School of Pharmacy and Health Professions occupational therapy program offers an entry-level doctorate degree in Colorado through Creighton’s collaboration with Regis University in Denver. This program offers a unique, hybrid program of distance learning and campus-based laboratories that physically meet on the Regis University campus. Study with Creighton OT faculty and practitioners. It’s designed to meet the needs of rural Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana where occupational therapists are scarce.

Anchorage, Alaska 

Since 2008, Creighton and the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) have partnered to address Alaska’s critical shortage of occupational therapists.
