Nurse Leaders Begin Here. Our mission is to educate nurses at the undergraduate and graduate levels to meet health care needs in Nevada and beyond. The School of Nursing promotes, improves, and sustains human health through evidence-based education and advances in research and practice.
The UNLV School of Nursing provides the initial educational experience for many of the nurses practicing in Southern Nevada. Many nurses with graduate degrees work as health care leaders in the Las Vegas area. The school benefits from a mixture of faculty whose backgrounds and educational preparation is remarkably diverse. The faculty continues to serve the community and to the university. Many have extensive publications to their credit and pursue research interests that will benefit the community and society. The school has high expectations of our students, our graduates and our faculty. As the school forges ahead, we will keep in mind our mission: To educate nurses who will stand as a symbol to all — intelligent, caring, and respected.
