We found 1 Family Nurse Practitioner program in Nevada.
Graduates of a Master of Science in Nursing Program (MSN) are eligible to apply for an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) License. Nevada requires that all licensed registered nurses complete an undergraduate program approved by The Nevada Board of Nursing. Undergraduates must then attend a Master's in Nursing Science program.
The Nevada Board of Nursing does not have an approved list of MSN programs. They do require that the chosen program be at least one academic year in length, include didactic instruction and clinical experience with a qualified physician (MD or DO) or APRN. The Nevada Board of Nursing also requires that you have practiced nursing within the last five years. The Board highly encourages MSN graduates to hold national certification as an APRN.
