While many industries today are struggling, the need for nurses continues to grow. Roseman University’s accelerated nursing program in Las Vegas was designed for people with a bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing field to complete a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) in just 16 months. During that time, you’ll gain knowledge and build key nursing skills through a combination of didactic (theory) coursework, simulation lab practice at our campus in Las Vegas and on-site clinical experiences throughout Southern Nevada. Once you have your BSN, you can sit for the NCLEX to obtain your RN license in any state.
