Life Sciences / Healthcare

Today’s healthcare evolves rapidly and continually, responding to emerging conditions and expanding boundaries of the possible. Location support must do the same. Here in Henderson we facilitate leading edge innovation through professional excellence in sync with current needs and through visionary support that anticipates the future.

Healthy growth for the healthcare sector begins with an experienced, highly trained and dedicated workforce. In Henderson, healthcare as a percentage of our economy is greater than the national average, while a strategically aligned talent pipeline is also adding robust numbers to our healthcare force. Five out of the top 10 degrees and certifications earned by area graduates are healthcare-related, even as collaborative efforts are yielding significant training enhancements and expansions.

Our professional pipeline includes:

Growth is brisk at NSC, Nevada’s very first state college; between 2018 and 2020 enrollment rose 30%. And to accommodate rising sector needs, the College has expanded its original three nursing tracks through a collaborative arrangement with College of Southern Nevada to create the new $6 million Betty Engelstad School for Health Sciences facility.

CSN’s new $6 million Betty Engelstad School of Health Sciences facility, operated in conjunction with Nevada State College, doubled the number of nursing graduates and broadened other health-related tracks.

This non-profit, private institution offers both undergraduate and graduate programs in pharmacy, nursing, dentistry and physician training.

Founded on the core Judaic values of teaching, service and learning, Touro is a non-profit focused on the goal of expanding healthcare and education services to Nevada and beyond. The university’s seven areas of healthcare-related study include nursing, physician assistant training, occupational therapy, physical therapy, osteopathic medicine and medical health sciences. In collaboration with Nevada State, Touro also offers a dual bachelor’s and master’s degree option.

The UNLV School of Medicine just opened in 2014, but already it’s earning an excellent reputation. In 2020, twenty-nine of the faculty physicians were recognized as Las Vegas’ Top Doctors and Healthcare Heroes.
