THE CU COLLEGE OF NURSING: A CASE FOR INSTRUCTIONAL PARTNERSHIP
A few weeks ago, the CU College of Nursing (colloquially known as the CON) received a well-deserved accolade from U.S. News & World Report—recognition as the fourth best online Master’s in Nursing program in the U.S. There are so many people responsible for this incredible honor—from brilliant, engaged faculty to a fantastic student affairs and diversity team to program directors and deans who empower innovation.
