nmcli only lists current connection

I am running Fedora 28 with the i3 window manager; thus, I need to use nmcli or some terminal-based way for connecting to wifi. I head about nmcli, so I tried it. The problem is that when I try to run nmcli device wifi list I am only shown the wifi network I am currently connected to. It does not display any other networks...as if they don't exist. Any tips on what might be going on? General tips on using nmcli are also welcome.
