Department of Nursing

The Department of Nursing educates and graduates competent, compassionate, caring nurses and nursing assistants to meet the diverse healthcare needs of our community. Students learn in our state-of-the-art educational, laboratory, and clinical facilities while working toward a Certificate of Achievement in Practical Nursing or an Associate of Applied Science degree in Nursing. We also offer a one-semester Nursing Assistant course and refresher courses for nurses with inactive Nevada licenses who wish to return to the workforce.

Take a look at our programs. Contacts are provided on each page if more information is needed.
