School of Nursing
As a Nevada State University School of Nursing graduate, you will be well-prepared to meet Southern Nevada’s need for qualified nursing professionals in a healthcare career, and be trusted in your holistic practice.
With the intentional structuring of the curricula in the caring science based upon the work of nurse theorist Dr. Jean Watson, our faculty are here to support you on your journey to academic and professional success, and inspire you to be compassionate as you provide nursing care to patients and their families.
The baccalaureate degree program in nursing at Nevada State College is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).
Pre-Licensure BSN Program - Full Time Track
The pre-licensure bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree tracks are for students who do not already have an associates degree in nursing and/or who are not already a practicing registered nurse. During the application process, students may apply for either a full- or part-time track in pursuit of a BSN. The full-time track is for students who prefer to continue in the academic setting at a full-time pace which is >12 credits per semester. Degree completion in the full-time track can typically be achieved in 5 semesters, including summers.
Pre-Licensure BSN Program - Part-Time Track
The pre-licensure bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree tracks are for students who do not already have an associates degree in nursing and/or who are not already a practicing registered nurse. During the application process, students may apply for either a full- or part-time track in pursuit of a BSN. The part-time track is for students who prefer to take courses at a part-time rate, typically 6-9 credits per semester where classes are offered primarily on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Degree completion in the part-time track can typically be achieved in 10 semesters, including summers.
Post-Licensure BSN Program - RN to BSN Online Track
The post-licensure bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree track is for students who have earned an associate degree in nursing; who hold an unencumbered Registered Nurse (RN) license; or who are recent graduates from an ADN program and are able to obtain an RN license within 7 weeks of acceptance into the program.
The innovative curriculum, infused with applications of the Caring Sciences, is offered in a 100% online format and includes both indirect and practice experiences.
