List of Accredited Nursing Schools in Utah

Heavily rooted in the Mormon faith the state of Utah has a population estimated a little under 3 million people. While the state as a whole is deeply rooted in the political aspect of the governing body, the state is also known for professional sports teams such as the Utah Jazz of the NBA as well as the Real Salt Lake MLS soccer team in addition to the six Division I universities that compete in NCAA sporting events. Although the state economy is driven by tourism, mining, and is set a tax rate the healthcare industry throughout the entire state can best be described as plentiful.

Although the educational system can be summed up as being traditionally based there are several colleges and universities to choose from when opting for a secondary education. With various levels of degree programs available earning a Masters, Bachelor’s, Doctoral, and Ph.D. can easily be done given the fact that there are several financial aid programs where students can get a scholarship to cover educational expenses. Some of the most traditional colleges and universities located within the state include the University of Utah at Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Community College, as well as several other research universities and private nonprofit educational institutions.

While the overall employment situation as it pertains to the nursing profession appears to be a bit on the bleak side due largely in part to the vast turnover rate present throughout the state, the overall situation is believed to be set to increase over the coming years. Becoming a licensed nurse (no matter what specified area) is the most important aspects before being hired at locations such as the University of Utah Healthcare, Intermountain Medical Center, Utah Valley Regional Medical Center, and many of the other local health care facilities throughout the state. Future positions, and in particular those positions reserved for LPN and RN employment is slated to increase by approximate 35% although the salary will remain at an average level.
