We are a collaborative group that is committed to helping organizations throughout our state on the journey of Antimicrobial Stewardship development.  You will find useful links related to practical information from the CDC  - specific Antibiotic Stewardship.   We hope that you take the time to review it and share it within your organization.


    We also offer assistance to help you get   up and running with the implementation  and data review process – just reach out   to any of our members listed in the CC portion of the email and we will connect  you with appropriate resources.


Please help us advance this goal and protect our patients.



Nevada antibiotic stewardship program's VISION: 

Through Education, collaboration, coordination, and advocacy - The Nevada Antibiotic Stewardship Program (NVASP)
