About Our Program
The mission of FRCC Nursing Program at Boulder County is to provide a quality nursing education that prepares graduates to become competent members of the nursing profession who deliver nursing care to diverse populations in an ever-changing health care environment.
Our LPN-ADN Bridge program is fully collaborative with the Colorado Nursing Articulation model, allowing our RN graduates to pursue their BSN at the university level with guaranteed transfer credits.
