Our nursing school in Phoenix, Arizona

Here at Arizona College of Nursing, we know a lot about nursing students. So we get it: you dream of being a nurse, but your life is already extremely busy, so how can you make it happen? We want to help you achieve your dreams, so that’s why we are giving you more options by opening a second campus here in the Valley. Our new Phoenix campus is conveniently located next to the intersection of Bell Road and I-17, and offers great access to the entire Phoenix metro, especially if you live in the West, North, or Central Valley.

We also tailored our curriculum to match your busy life. The first 4 semesters of our BSN nursing program are evening general education classes. To help you earn your nursing degree faster, you’ll complete each general education course in just 8 weeks.

Stop by to learn more about our BSN degree, which prepares you to take on a wider range of responsibilities than an ADN, CNA, LVN or LPN nursing program.

BSN Curriculum

We believe in a focused and structured educational environment. Our curriculum is methodically designed to help you reach your career aspirations.

Our Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree is a 3-year nursing program, with the first year focused on general education classes, such as: The Fundamentals of Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Global Health. Year Two of our nursing program transitions into the Nursing core portion of the program, with courses like Pharmacology, Microbiology, and Human Pathophysiology. 

In the final year, you will spend most of your time engaged in patient care along side medical professionals. You will also take classes in specialty fields such as Maternal Health, Pediatrics, and Community Health.
