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.
