OPPORTUNITIES AT COLLEGE OF THE ROCKIES

I live in Cranbrook and it's cheaper than moving somewhere else to attend. This way I'm close to family for mental and emotional support as well as to my church family. They have played a major role in supporting me mentally and emotionally through these first two years of school!


Course Curriculum - 

It is still clearly under construction as they have just added years 3 and 4 of the program to this campus. It's opened some cool opportunities and also given this to think about for the future of our nursing careers.
