Nebraska Nursing Schools and Programs

Nebraska is also known as "Cornhusker" country; is filled with farms, ranches and has the largest domesticated llama population. There are festivals happening somewhere all summer long! The Lewis and Clark expedition came through with many other famous pioneer’s and great explorers. The Plains Indians has rich history throughout the whole state and hold many pow-wow’s today. Nebraska is a very rural state and is in need of nurses in many areas. Rest assured, you will find welcoming neighbors, and a peaceful atmosphere while pursing your nursing education.

Nebraska faces a different type of nursing shortage than the rest of America. Since most of the state is very rural, it is hard to keep nurses in the area. Nebraska has come up with a plan to educate nurses and keep them in the rural areas by offering higher salaries and more accessibility to furthering registered nurses education to become leaders in the industry. The Nebraska Center for Nursing is dedicated to the recruitment and retention of nurses within the state. We list all options, rural community colleges or online to the university programs, throughout the state with top notch nursing programs to achieve your nursing goals.
