The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the demand for skilled nurses will exceed the supply. This is one of several compelling reasons that Nevada’s aspiring nurses choose to pursue a degree at one of the state’s four-year colleges or universities.

Overview of nursing programs
The journey to becoming a registered nurse (RN) in Nevada requires completing either a two-year associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) or a four-year bachelor of science in nursing (BSN). The majority of these prelicensure programs are offered at the state’s four-year colleges and universities. For example, the University of Nevada offers BSN programs at both its Las Vegas and Reno campuses, while Western Nevada College in Carson City offers a highly regarded ADN program. Graduates are highly sought-after by major Nevada healthcare employers like St. Rose Dominican Hospitals, Genesis HealthCare, and LifeCare Hospitals.

In addition to providing direct patient care, RNs are trained to administer medication and make critical patient care decisions.

Nevada’s RNs can earn anywhere from $65,000 to more than $90,000 per year, depending upon education and seniority.
