Share Article

Christian International School of Healthcare Professions changes its name to Christian International College and meets criteria to achieve college status.

Christian International School of Healthcare Professions, a leading provider of Practical Nursing Diploma and Registered Nursing Associate and Bachelor Degree programs in Pinellas County, Florida, has announced a name change to Christian International College (CIC). The name change illustrates that the school has met the criteria set by the Florida Commission for Independent Education to achieve “College” status.

“There is a definite buzz on the Christian International College campus. The Lord has blessed us with rapid growth since we first opened our doors to students in February 2011. In order to qualify as a college, an institution must offer more degree programs than diploma programs and have a greater number of enrolled students seeking degrees than diplomas or certificates,” said Dr. Carolyn Farrell, Compliance Director.

CIC is a Christian College whose sole area of study is nursing. It is this very combination that makes the Largo nursing college such a unique institution in the Tampa Bay area. The faculty is committed to delivering nursing education with a holistic approach to patient centered care. The goal at CIC is always to soundly equip students so they are able to minister to a patient’s spiritual and emotional needs, in addition to providing nursing care. Nursing is much more than medications and treatment. CIC nursing students are expected to apply themselves diligently and demonstrate clinical competence; but an emphasis is also placed on caring, compassion, and sanctity of life.
