This college used to have a nursing program as well, but that is also being discontinued. It had a very thorough practical nursing program that was popular in the area. The nurse aide courses were also very popular and produced many fine medical professionals over the years. Nursing students from this program are now looking into various transfer options to see how they can proceed with their education. The school even offered registered nursing courses and was capable of handing out associate degrees to graduates. This nursing program is no longer an option for students in the Las Vegas area.
