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]
