Schools in the Las Vegas Area: ADN
Everest: Provisional accreditation only, Private College, I don't know anything else about them.
ITT Tech: Provisional accreditation only, I believe they have stopped accepting students due to low NCLEX pass rates and are ending their program.
National University: Provisional accreditation only, Private College, I don't know anything else about them.
CSN: Public Community College. Probably the best, and only viable ADN program in Las Vegas. 2 year program after prerequisites. All the students I know that went there enjoyed the program and have since passed their NCLEX. Relatively inexpensive. Admission is done for fall and spring, and lately the lowest entering scores have been ridiculously high, above 27. They have both part time and full time programs, however after you complete the prerequisites(you will also need the optional ones done to have a chance of getting in), even the full time program is really part time. You can find more information on their web page: http://sites.csn.edu/health/nursing/nursing-rn.html BSN
UNLV: Public University. This is the college I was accepted into and currently attend. 48 students accepted each semester(fall spring and summer). The program is 18 months long, 4 semesters with classes every semester including the summer, after completion of prerequisites. Competition is very high, more than 2 students apply for every spot. The instructors are very knowledgeable but very strict and hold you to a very high standard. Lab facilities are shared with NSC and the Med school. I have about 4 weeks left in my first semester and so far so good, we have only lost 2 students out of 48. If you have any specific question feel free to ask. http://nursing.unlv.edu/
NSC: Public College. Part time and full time programs. Accelerated program for individuals with a bachelors degree. UNLV and NSC share the same lab facility. Of the classes I have taken at NSC(all non nursing) the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful, generally smaller class sizes than those found at UNLV or CSN. I believe the part time program is easier to get into than full time. However the full time slots were cut back a while ago. The students I know that go there enjoy it. The college is relatively new, less than 10 years I believe. Students are only accepted spring and fall, and only the accelerated program has classes over the summer. http://nsc.nevada.edu/83.asp
USN: Private university, 40 thousand dollars for 18 month program, after prerequisites. From the students I know that go there, there is a high drop out rate within the first semester. 90% or better is required on all tests. I hear the instructors are good. http://www.usn.edu/
Touro: Private university, they cancled their spring class due to low NCLEX pass rates. I don't know if they will be accepting students for spring. Approximatively 40 thousand dollars. Accelerated 18 month program after prerequisites. http://www.tun.touro.edu/
Not the best indicator but decent to see how good or bad a school is: NCLEX pass scores. They are contained in the PDF documents: http://www.nursingboard.state.nv.us/annual%20reports/
