Utah State University
Utah State University is working to address statewide nursing shortages with their ACEN-accredited Nursing programs. USU Nursing programs award the practical nursing certificate to prepare for licensure as a practical nurse in Blanding, Moab, and Price. The associate of applied science in nursing prepares students to become entry-level registered nurses through our programs in Blanding, Cedar City, Moab, Price, Tooele, and the Uintah Basin. The Bachelor of Science in nursing is offered only in Logan and prepares students to perform broader and more complex nursing procedures. Students have access to affordable programs supported by scholarships and state-of-the-art technology equipped with simulation labs as they prepare for licensure. Our graduates enjoy a high pass rate and job placement. To learn more visit nursing.usu.edu.
