Hi, I just came across this thread.
There are various RN programs here that fit different needs.
I myself was at first trying to get into the College of Southern Nevada program. I even have 28 points to apply. It goes by a point system. However, my plans have changed now.
I want to get a Bachelor's Degree to join the Air Force as a nurse.
For CSN, I heard from many people, even though it's a junior college, it is by far the hardest nursing program in the Las Vegas. Some people want to go there and not want to go there for that very reason.
There are some Universities like USN (University of Southern Nevada), Touro University and UNLV to get a Bachelor's degree and higher. Take note, UNLV does not take any science classes less than a B. Another option is Nevada State College with also a Bachelor's program.
(graduated from a community college long ago) told me that the private universities might be easier to get through, because they might give you more help and more leniency. You are paying a lot of money to attend them.
Apollo and National are private colleges with associated degree programs CSN is very competitive at the moment and plus I heard the program is no joke, but I heard that they do produce the best nurses here in Vegas.
