Brand new dorms have just been built so more students will be moving in soon. The school is expanding quickly and the student population is growing fast! One of their top priorities is diversity and they never slack on striving to diversify their students. The professors all genuinely care about their students, this experience is the reason I chose Nevada State over the community college near me. I love my school and the people I have met during my college career.

I have attended Nevada State College for the past year and a half. I am a returning college student who is much older than the average student there. All the students I have been in contact with thus far, shows appreciation for what I am out to accomplish. They invite me to hangout and party with them. When we are in class we work as a team and get these projects completed and turned in. I must say that Nevada State College is young College with a bright future ahead of it. I have been to several city and state colleges in my day. This one is just right for me!
Nevada State Colleges Nursing Program is amazing. The teachers and staff are very involved in your success and are always there to support you. The school is very organized and has clear expectations for their students. The price of tuition is also manageable. I'm so happy I chose NSC out of all the other nursing schools in the state. It's simply the best. Go Scorpions!
