You are already one of the heroes in healthcare as a Registered Nurse. When you join Touro University Nevada for the next step in your professional career, you will be equipped with the knowledge to excel in research, education, and community service while learning the importance of evidence-based practice.
"Being able to work while doing the program not only do you get to keep up your nursing skills and then you're going to apply what you're learning in your NP school to what you're seeing in your patients every day."
The RN to BSN program is 100% online and can be completed in as little as one year. The Master of Science in Nursing degree program offers students the chance to specialize as a family nurse practitioner. The entire first year of the FNP program is online with short-term, on-campus clinical intensives in the second year.
"Having worked as a nurse for 14 years in the valley, I was realizing that there was just more skills that I wanted to not only develop but to be able to provide the community and with having experience as a nurse and then being able to carry that over as to be an experienced provider, I feel like that's a really really valuable skill to have." "The greatest thing about Touro is that they had on on campus skills practicum. I'm a very visual and kinesthetic learner so by being here and practicing I thought that would benefit me the best."
"I'm really grateful for having the opportunity to have an online institution that also allows me to be on campus here at Toro and to be able to develop great relationships with my classmates, my future co-workers, as well as the mentorship that I get from the staff and faculty."
The Post-Master's Certificate program also offers the family nurse practitioner specialization which can be completed in a little more than a year.
"I have a Master of Science in nursing education and going to looking for a program that I don't need to do more of the pre-reqs master's so I found Touro University Nevada because they offer a post master FNP program. So by doing that I'll be able to see more patients and take care of them in a holistic rather than more focused."
The Doctor of Nursing Practice degree program offers professional nurses the opportunity to reach this distinguished level of academic achievement in only one year with 100% online coursework. The DNP curriculum is focused on leadership that will strengthen each student's ability to be a leader in his or her work environment.
"Going for my DNP was something I thought I would never do at my age and it actually made me feel very empowered with myself knowing that I could actually come back to school and obtain my Doctorate of Nursing Practice, a terminal degree. The program was one year which worked great with my schedule. Even though I was working full-time, the one year got me where I needed to be in a short period of time."
From the supportive faculty to the wealth of other academic resources offered through the School of Nursing, we are committed to seeing our students succeed in all nursing degree programs and in their nursing careers.
