Nevada Teacher Certification:
From Basic Requirements to Approved Programs

Earning Nevada teacher certification requires strict adherence to state guidelines.

Decisions made in the early stages of the certification process will determine not only your cost but also the extent of your time commitment.

Take a few minutes to read carefully through the materials provided by the state of Nevada.

Doing so before choosing an approved online teacher education program will ensure that your time and money are well spent.

Finding the program that is right for you depends upon your current level of education and your prior work experience. If you already have a bachelor's degree, you may find a master's program that will set you on the fast track to teacher certification.

If you have already earned a master's degree in the subject area you plan to teach, you may need only a few education courses and relevant work experience to qualify for a teaching job.

For those making the change to teaching from another career, more flexible programs may be available. Alternative routes to licensure do exist in Nevada, but information must be gathered on a case-by-case basis.

If you plan to pursue a non-traditional path to a teaching career, get in touch with a representative from the Nevada Department of Education. You will need to pass tests in professional skills and subject area knowledge.
