For nearly 50 years the UALR Department of Nursing has inspired and guided individuals towards the dynamic profession of nursing.  Our faculty and staff are dedicated to improving the health care of all Arkansans by educating professional, thoughtful, and compassionate nurses.  We offer an Associate of Applied Science (AAS), BSN, LPN/Paramedic to RN and BSN online completion program. Our advice for students is to take ownership and get as much information as possible about the nursing profession and degree options.  Don’t be afraid to ask questions.  Do this early and often!  For more information about one of the top nursing programs in the state visit: or email  


Nursing Notes

“It’s good to have some diversity in the work setting, especially when you have nurses who have been working in the same field or facility for a while. It is nice to bring in a fresh set of eyes with a different outlook and perspective. We make diversity and cultural competency a priority and an expectation at our facility. Communicating and understanding others’ cultural beliefs and ideas are keys to working with a diverse team. Having a diverse team can lead to better options and practices of patient care.”


Beth Williams, RN Director of Nursing, The BridgeWay
