AHU Denver

Over the years, our community has expanded far beyond Orlando.

Education with a Healing Touch

AHU Denver offers faith-based healthcare education with the philosophy that healthcare is a ministry, knowing that the compassion we share with our students will be extended through the service they provide in their healthcare careers. Our Denver site was founded in 2009 as an extension of the environment of excellence offered by our main campus in Orlando, Florida, offering fully accredited programs in Radiography, Sonography, and Nursing. Our combination of academic excellence, nurturing support, and hands-on training sets our students on the right path to a healthy career.

AHU Denver is located adjacent to Porter Adventist Hospital in beautiful Denver, Colorado.

Lectures from Orlando. Clinicals in Denver.

Through the use of Polycom video conferencing technology, students on our Denver site are able to collaborate in real-time with our students and faculty at our Orlando campus. Our Denver faculty will also periodically teach back to our students in Orlando. All class lectures are recorded for easy access at your convenience. On-site and online tutoring are available free of charge to all our students.

Master your skills outside the classroom.

Hands-on learning through lab and clinical education is provided by our faculty in Denver. Our connection to Adventist Health System ensures that our students have access to clinical education in all of the Adventist hospitals in the Centura Health hospital system. Our graduates have achieved higher than average pass rates on licensure exams and nearly 70% have been hired by Centura Health upon graduation.

Your Healthy Career Starts Here.®

Don't just take our word for it. Hear what our students have to say about enrolling at AHU Denver.

"It's not a culture of stress here, it's a culture of support, encouragement and love. Having come from a different program, I can starkly see the difference. The faculty is willing to do whatever you need to succeed in your program, truly. And it's fantastic."

- Madison, Nursing

"As somebody who has a Bachelor's degree from a large University, I think the size of the campus is very unique. I enjoy that I know everybody's name on campus, and that I have a relationship with other students from other programs, and even Directors of the other programs. It's a very intimate experience and one that I think makes AHU special."

- Jenn, Sonography

"AHU not only hands you the tools to be a success, they teach you how to use those tools and then insist you use them."

- Larry, Nursing
