Nursing Schools in Kentucky - KY

Select an area of interest to find schools:

Nursing schools in Kentucky have been impacted by the nursing shortage as well as the nursing faculty shortage. The Kentucky nursing schools have become increasingly competitive and many overly qualified candidates are being turned away or waitlisted. This should not be viewed as a negative or a reason for you not to pursue your goals and become a nurse. It just means that you will need to work hard to prepare yourself to be as competitive as possible for a spot in the nursing program your choose. Learn more about becoming a nurse in Kentucky and what you can do to potentially set yourself apart from the competition.

Online Nursing Schools in Kentucky

We have tried to create a flexible and affordable solution for those registered nurses looking to advance their career by offering online nursing programs through some of the largest private universities in the country. The University of Phoenix School of Nursing, Walden University School of Nursing and Kaplan University School of Nursing provide Kentucky RN students flexibility by allowing them to complete their BSN coursework online. These universities are accredited by the CCNE (Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education). Nurses are choosing to get their online nursing degree to become more educated and to compete for the many Kentucky nursing jobs requiring a bachelor's degree in nursing. Master's degree nurses also are in greater demand in Kentucky as nurses are providing more preventive and primary care to patients or are seeking preparation for positions in administration, education or other leadership areas.

The Online LPN to BSN and RN to BSN programs featured on this site prepare nurses for, not only bedside care, but for providing nursing care to patients in many settings outside of the hospital and result in a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
