Top-ranked programs. Now in Phoenix.
Creighton’s established, reputable programs are now available to students in Arizona. Along with a four-year medical school, students can pursue an accelerated BSN, doctor of occupational therapy, doctor of pharmacy, doctor of physical therapy and master of physician assistant studies.
A Space Designed for Collaborative Learning
Creighton’s Phoenix campus opened in 2021, offering students more than 6,000 square feet of simulation space.
In the school’s nine labs, learners gain hands-on experience with standardized patients, home care environments and more.
By 2025, we project that the Phoenix campus will be home to nearly 1,000 health sciences students.

Ignite Scholars in Nursing
Students in the 12-month accelerated BSN program in Phoenix can receive scholarships covering full tuition and fees for the program in exchange for a four-year commitment to working as a nurse in Arizona. Creighton is committed to helping meet the growing need for nurses in the region. In recognition of that commitment, the state of Arizona has awarded the University funds to educate nursing students.
The Future of Healthcare in Arizona
With a growing population, Arizona is facing a dire healthcare provider shortage. That means Creighton graduates are in high demand. True to our Jesuit, Catholic mission, our students leave ready to make a difference in the Southwest and help lead the way to a healthier Arizona.
