All of the nursing programs here in Las Vegas/Henderson require pre-reqs, as far as I know. I am currently taking mine and it isn't fun. I am not familiar with programs if you are a LVN, so I may not be the best to get info from, but I'll tell you what I do know. Nevada State College has an accelerated program that takes 1 year and not that expensive. Both Touro (www.tu.edu
) and Southern Nevada University have programs that take approx. 18 months. They are private, so they cost quite a bit. With Touro's program you can opt to continue on for 6 additional months and receive a master's degree. Hope this helps.
