Colorado Springs sits at the foot of the Rocky Mountains near Pikes Peak. Look up from just about anywhere in the city, and you’ll see at least some of the 19 red sandstone formations called the “Garden of the Gods.” In other words, nursing jobs in Colorado Springs come with a view.

The city is also known for its healthcare. It has two of the top-ranked hospitals in Colorado: Penrose-St. Francis Health Services and UCHealth Memorial Hospital. The city has also become known for The William J. Hybl Center, a partnership between Centura Health and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS). The center provides medical and performance-based clinical healthcare, testing, and counseling services for the U.S. military, first responders, the physically disabled, and extreme-condition athletes.

The nursing and health sciences program at UCCS has been lauded as one of the best nursing programs in the country by U.S. News & World Report. It provides all levels of nursing education, from certificates to BSN degrees to post-doctorate programs in nursing.

Living in Colorado Springs

You’ve got a diverse choice of neighborhoods in Colorado Springs.

On the west side of the city, you’ll find Old Colorado City/West Side. It looks nearly the same as when it was built in 1959 with many homes on the National Historic Registry. The Downtown/Old North End has historic architecture and narrow streets. Unlike most urban downtowns, you can still see the mountains from almost any corner because no tall buildings are in the way.

If you’re looking for the upscale section of Colorado Springs, it’s Cheyenne/Broadmoor. You’ll find old and new architecture and Broadmoor Resort, known for its restaurants, spas, and luxury. The Southeast neighborhood is a mid-century marvel, with the original 50s and 60s architecture plus new development. Drive a little further from downtown to see Northeast/Briargate/Northgate. It’s more modern than other areas of the city.

Three smaller cities are close to Colorado Springs, so they are treated as neighborhoods. They are Palmer Park, Security/Fountain/Ft. Carson and Manitou Springs

Ask anyone to recommend a signature Colorado City dish in a local restaurant, and you’ll likely get huevos rancheros smothered in green chiles. A whole wheat tortilla is covered with refried and black beans, green chilis, vegan New Mexican chili, two over-medium eggs, and white cheddar cheese.

You won’t be lacking in Colorado Springs if you like museums and galleries. Among the mainstream are Expanding Minds Unlimited – CS Children’s Museum, The Old Colorado City Historical Society, and May Natural History Museum. For a unique experience, visit Dr. Lester L.
