Chamberlain College of Nursing has announced its newest campuses in Las Vegas, Nevada and metropolitan Detroit, Michigan. These are the 15th and 16th campuses for Chamberlain, after the opening of the Pearland, Texas campus earlier this year.

The Las Vegas campus aims to grow the nursing workforce to meet state demand.

Nevada has the nation’s fourth-lowest number of registered nurses per 100,000 people at 724.7, far lower than the national average of 920.9.[i] Further accelerating a need for nurses is the state’s growing population of residents over age 65, which is projected to nearly double by 2020.[ii]


Like all nurses, Lynn Elliott, MS, RN, started her career wanting to make a difference in the lives of others. Now, after 40 years of nursing and impacting countless lives, she has been honored by the state of Florida for her contributions to public health, named one of the Sunshine state’s public health heroes.

But when she started out, she was only driven by a desire to help. And it was this drive which brought Elliott to new challenges and helped her overcome them.


Elizabeth Fildes, EdD, RN, CNE, CARN-AP, APHN-BC, DACACD, may be one nurse, but through her work, she’s helped improve the lives of thousands of people.

Now she’s bringing her expertise back to her native Philippines as a volunteer consultant for the country’s new tobacco users’ quitline.


According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, around 2.3 million men and women are incarcerated in U.S. jails and prisons. It’s a population with complex and diverse healthcare needs – injuries, chronic conditions, even palliative care.

Providing nursing care to this group of patients, and in this setting, is not a job for everyone, said Lorry Schoenly, PhD, RN, a correctional nursing specialist and visiting professor in Chamberlain’s MSN program. However, for the right nurse, it can also be extremely satisfying and rewarding specialty.
