New Mexico offers a wide array of four-year nursing programs for students to gain the insights and skills necessary for nursing practice. The benefits offered by these longer-term programs make them the most popular choice for students wishing to practice nursing.

Four-year colleges and universities for nursing
Four-year colleges and universities are widely considered the standard for nursing education. Most four-year colleges offer a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree, which covers in-depth medical knowledge as well as technical training. Four-year programs enable students to pursue many opportunities unavailable in other programs by equipping them with managerial skills, nursing informatics, and nursing theory in addition to advanced sciences. As a result, registered nurses can perform their tasks very effectively and advance to administrative positions more quickly. Interested students are strongly advised to take four-year programs, as prospective employers have a preference for nursing staff with high versatility and strong medical training.
