Although students can attend a public school at much lower cost than a private school, public institutions still offer top-notch education.

Nurses are the frontline providers of Nevada’s healthcare services. They are essential in the delivery of day-to-day patient care in a variety of settings that reach beyond hospitals and clinics. For example, many nurses work in long-term care facilities, nursing homes, health maintenance organizations, and outpatient surgicenters. The need for nurses in virtually every healthcare setting has made nursing the largest healthcare profession in the U.S.
