Registered Nurses picture    Registered Nurses image

A registered nurse (RN), regardless of work setting or specialty, provides health care to patients who are ill or injured. Although most (60%) registered nurses are employed by hospitals, RNs can also be found in physicians' offices, home healthcare services, nursing care facilities and employment services.

Registered Nursing Schools in Nevada

To become a registered nurse, there are three typical educational paths--a bachelor's degree in nursing (BSN), an associate degree in nursing (ADN) or a diploma. Those who already hold a bachelor's degree in another field and are interested in switching to a career in nursing may also enroll in an accelerated BSN program, which usually lasts 12 to 18 months. All registered nursing programs provide classroom instruction and hands-on clinical experience. Coursework for registered nurses usually includes anatomy, physiology, microbiology, chemistry, nutrition, behavioral sciences and nursing. There are many registered nursing schools in Nevada, both online and campus-based, that can help you earn an ADN or BSN, but there are fewer options when it comes to diploma programs. All states and the District of Columbia require that registered nursing students graduate from an approved program as well as pass a licensing examination. Other requirements vary by state. RN schools in Nevada can help you gain the education and training you need to become a successful registered nurse.
