Recruiters - Schools

Jon Vickers, Ashley Bennett


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

“For advanced degree levels, I see three areas of major opportunity: Nurse Practitioner, Nursing Education and Nursing Informatics. We need practitioners to help cover the gap in the lack of physician coverage, we will need even more educators to continue educating young nurses and we are moving at light speed in many ways making our health care delivery system more electronic.”
