West Nebraska Division in Scottsbluff

Beautiful Landscape with a Hometown Feel

Study at the West Nebraska Division in Scottsbluff and you’ll earn a Bachelor of Science from the only baccalaureate nursing program in the Panhandle of Nebraska and Eastern Wyoming. This is important due to the rural nature of the geography and the dire need to graduate bachelor's prepared nurses in the region to staff our rural hospitals. After graduation, the West Nebraska Division will provide full options for completing your master’s and doctoral degrees.

The Scottsbluff campus offers a personal family type approach to the learning experience. Beat the big-city, big-classroom blues here. Classes are small and faculty and staff really get to know you. If you like one-on-one mentoring, the faculty and academic coach on our campus provide you with services that will help guide you through academic challenges and barriers to help improve your success in the program.

Students experience clinical training at several local medical facilities, physician offices and health care centers. The West Nebraska Division offers advanced learning technologies and state of the art learning services, all for tuition that competes as one of the most affordable in the nation. Additional financial assistance may exist for students from rural communities. We encourage you to contact our office for information about those opportunities.
