UAPB making plans to develop new baccalaureate nursing program

PINE BLUFF, Ark. – The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) has begun the process of developing a new Baccalaureate Nursing Program and has committed resources within the Office of Academic Affairs to guide the one-year process.

“We are committed to offer much needed baccalaureate nursing education here in the Arkansas Delta,” said UAPB Interim Chancellor Dr. Calvin Johnson.

Major steps will include a feasibility study, an on-site survey by a representative of the Arkansas State Board of Nursing followed by review and approval from the organization. Final approval is given by the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees and the Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
