New Mexico is home to many public schools in nursing, all offering a high-quality education to prospective nurses. Since public schools are just one of the many options available to students, it is important to understand their characteristics and advantages in order to make the most informed decision about your education.

Public nursing schools
Public colleges and universities are often the best choice for students looking to start their nursing career, as these institutions are known for their affordability and high-quality education. Most public nursing schools are funded by the state, which means they offer not only a great learning environment but also lower tuition costs. In fact, scholarships and grants can cover up to half of the typical tuition, while even more can be covered by part-time jobs and internships. Public schools also offer the largest range of educational plans, including two-year associate’s, four-year bachelor’s, master's, and doctoral degrees. Training for these programs varies greatly, but all promise to give students a great start to their careers.
