We've organized a comprehensive list of Arizona nursing schools. Below you'll find information on specific nursing programs such as LPN certificates and ADN, BSN, and MSN degrees. You'll also find a profile of nursing education and careers in each major Arizona city.

Arizona is home to more than 75,000 nursing professionals across a broad range of roles, including registered nurse (RN), licensed practical nurse (LPN), and certified nursing assistant (CNA). Hundreds of these professionals work in Tempe, Arizona’s eighth-largest city. Many of Tempe’s nurses earned their degree or certificate at a local nursing school. The most prominent local option is Arizona State University, of course, but accredited schools like Brookline College and University of Phoenix also have nearby campuses.

Scottsdale is home to one of the most revered institutions of American medicine, the Mayo Clinic. Indeed, Scottsdale’s nursing professionals have a broad range of high-quality employers from which to choose. Aspiring nurses must understand the different roles that these employers are seeking to fill, including responsibilities, educational requirements, and compensation.
