Dean Thompson

Welcome!

As the dean, I am proud to join the distinguished and internationally-known faculty at the University of Colorado College of Nursing, faculty who are committed to improving the health and well-being of people through outstanding leadership in practice, education and research.

This is an exciting time to be a nurse. Reforms in our health care system are inevitable. Nurses will play a pivotal role in creating change. Nurses are expected to be transformational leaders; leaders who discover new knowledge to enhance patient outcomes, translate scientific evidence into patient care delivery, work in interprofessional teams and improve health outcomes through developing and testing new care delivery models. Nurses are at the forefront of health care.

Our master’s programs are consistently ranked in the top 15 in the nation.  The 2013 rankings by U.S.News & World Report show our pediatric nurse practitioner program fifth in the nation, our nursing-midwifery program 13th in the nation and our family nurse practitioner program 16th in the nation.  Whether you are seeking a bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree, the College of Nursing has an educational path to meet your needs.

With more than 110 years of contributions to nursing education, practice and research, the CU College of Nursing has innovative curricula as well as nationally renowned research and practice faculty to support your career ambitions.

Be a nurse leader!  Apply to one of our programs today.
