thank you all for replying and helping me out...this is what the nursing board said to me....i'm just scared of enrolling and then them end up screwing me. (sorry). it's a lot of money to spend. 38,000 dollars..whew. so i guess i would like to find out if anyone graduated from their program anywhere else.
the board cannot recommend a particular nursing school. we can tell you that both the university of southern nevada and apollo college have received provisional approval from the nevada state board of nursing (see our website www.nursingboard.state.nv.us
for a list of all approved schools of nursing in nevada).
this means that they meet the initial legal requirements to conduct a nursing education program in nevada. after a nursing education program is nationally accredited (which can only occur after it graduates its first class) and its students attain an 80 percent pass rate on the nclex, the school can apply to the board for full approval.
nevada regulations state that for purposes of licensure, applicants who have attended and graduated from a provisionally approved school in the process of attaining accreditation are eligible for nevada licensure.
we hope this is helpful and we wish you the best in your pursuit of a nursing career.
