Welcome to the Fort Lewis College Collaborative with CU Nursing

The University of Colorado College of Nursing (CU Nursing) at the Anschutz Medical Campus and Fort Lewis College (FLC) have announced a first-of-its-kind partnership to create a four-year undergraduate degree in nursing, bringing the state’s flagship medical institute of higher education to the rural and Indigenous-serving campus of Southwest Colorado. Ushering in a new model of health and collaboration, FLC and CU Nursing are combining hands-on, culturally sensitive, patient-centered healthcare with the latest trends in medicine, like telehealth, which is an immediate need in rural communities around Durango.
