Make a Difference for Your Patients and Career!

At Nevada State University, we believe that all healthcare professionals—especially nurses—seek to personally connect with others on a path toward meaning and wholeness. We developed our RN to BSN track on the principles defined by Dr. Jean Watson’s “Theory of Human Caring” to promote more mindful, authentic healing and care. It is designed to provide the practical skills, insights and credentials you need to better care for your patients, your community, and your career.

Through a dynamic online program of study, you will be encouraged and empowered to be:

  • A more caring, more competent healer
  • Authentic in every relationship — professional & personal
  • Ready for a lifetime of leadership opportunities
