100 Years of Outstanding Graduates

After graduating from DCS, I went to Dordt University and received my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I felt very prepared for college, since Denver Christian provided all the necessary tools for me to succeed in higher education. DCS also helped prepare me to share my love of Christ to those I care for on a daily basis in my work as a Clinical Nurse Coordinator at The Medical Center of Aurora here in Colorado.
