We've organized a comprehensive list of New Mexico 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 New Mexico city.

The size of a school’s student body can tell prospective nursing students a great deal about the school. With over 22,000 nurses employed in New Mexico, nursing schools must offer a variety of programs and degrees in order to meet demand. These range from two-year programs, such as an associate’s degree in nursing or certificate in licensed practical nursing, to four-year degrees and more advanced graduate-level programs.

Students pursuing higher education in nursing must be fully informed of all costs associated with attendance. Different schools charge different tuition rates, vary in local cost of living, offer a variety of grants and financial aid options, and provide different lengths of nursing programs. Altogether, these characteristics determine the total cost of attending a nursing program at a specific school. Grand Canyon University, for example, is a private university that prides itself on extensive hands-on training while remaining one of the most affordable universities in New Mexico.
