For nearly 50 years, the UALR Department of Nursing has inspired and guided individuals toward 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, LNP/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!

Nursing Notes

“Always remember why you wanted to be a nurse in the first place. When you are tired and worn out, the patient call light keeps going off, and you just can’t go another second, remind yourself about why you are a nurse. Being a nurse is a calling and a privilege.”
