Relocating for Nursing School

If you want to get moving on a nursing degree, you should consider relocating to Las Vegas or Salt Lake City for nursing school. We are one of the few universities with four accelerated BSN program starts a year at each of our campuses in Utah and Nevada. In fact, many of our accelerated BSN students are from California, a state known for its long nursing school waitlists.

“I was willing to move to get into nursing faster because California was oversaturated with nursing students. Some of the nursing programs had two-year waiting lists, while others used lottery pools.” —Shaun Rose, ABSN Program Alumna
