Actually here, on a plea they will often waive that requirement - or at most, community service. In my experience the only jail time that is really pushed hard (if ever) is on 2nd or 3rd DUI - and on a second they'll often allow weekend check-ins to the jail.

I learn something about another state almost daily on this site. Thanks. Have a great day.

I also learn reading other attorneys' responses, especially in practice areas I'm not as familiar with. One thing that I don't see much - which I think is healthy in any legal discussion - is much disagreement! I remember at the start of 1L our 'section leader' professor brought in several professors to literally argue in front of us (not heated, just open discussion and debate) about issues which they taught. The purpose, which the professor explained to us explicitly, was to see that on a wide variety of issues in the law, even the leading scholars had disagreements big and small. His entire perspective and daily mantra was that the law was actually "foggy, fluid and conflicted."

There is a mandatory minimum of 2 days in jail for first offense DUI in Nevada. Generally, if the conditions of release are fulfilled, they are given credit for two days and the case is closed or reduced, even if they only spent the night in jail. If they fail to complete the requirements and a suspended sentence is imposed, they are generally given those two days' credit towards their imposed time.
