    Awesome!!! I had heard the same thing, but it was third hand so I didn't want to pass it on without knowing it was true. I'm so glad it's true!! Thanks for the great news!

    tgibs, thanks for finding out how many students they are accepting! Christina, Hi...I was wondering if you knew anything about needing to have a BSN by 2015 for Nevada nurses? I was speaking to a woman who graduated NSC and is working at UMC and she mentioned something about making sure I have my bachelors by 2015 cause the hospitals will be requiring it for hire. Have you heard anything? I know many "prefer" a BSN, but will it be required?? I am planning on doing the bridge program but that still wont get me my BSN till 2016 I believe. Thanks for any info!!

    I haven't heard about a bachelors degree being required as a blanket rule for Nevada. Some positions say they prefer bachelors but I know csn grads are highly sought after. A friend of mine that graduated from Roseman in 2011 had a hell of a time finding a job (along with most of her class). She ended up working out at the jail in pahrump for a long time before being able to find work in town. I rarely hear this with csn grads. I guess we will see in a few years when we're all on the job hunt . I do know that not all hospitals in Vegas are run by the same company so when someone says "the hospitals will require..." they should think a bit more. I depends on the policy of the company, not their geographic location. I too plan on doing a bridge program somewhere...haven't decided where though so hopefully it won't be an issue down the road.

    You will find when you are in clinicals that the nurses are very happy to be working with CSN students! We know what we are doing! We are in clinicals from almost day 1, so we get a TON of hands on experience. By the time we get to 4th we are pretty much on our own with our nurse, doing everything! I won't mention names of schools, but there were a few this semester at the same hospital I was at, in critical care, and didn't know basic things :/

    For first semester the first 3 weeks are held on campus in the labs, the next 4 weeks are at a long term care facility. The one I went to was in Summerlin. The final 6 weeks are at a sub-acute/rehab facility. I am at Kindred which is attached to st rose de lima in Henderson. You don't go to the actual hospital until med surg I (NURS 115) in 2nd semester. That's when you do all the fun stuff. First semester is mostly cna stuff (but still interesting!) The only thing that kinda sucks is that you can't choose your clinical location or instructor, only time. I live on the south end of town and I had to be up in summerlin at 0630. That was not so fun. But it's all worth it!
