PINE BLUFF, Ark. (July 9, 2015) – Enrollment is now open for the upcoming 2015-2016 school year of Pre-Licensure (Generic) Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) program at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.

Prospective students who have completed the required prerequisite general education courses are now able to submit applications.

Students who are admitted to the pre-licensure program and successfully complete all required coursework and program requirements will be eligible to apply to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Students who pass the NCLEX-RN will be licensed to practice as a registered nurse.

“I am exceptionally proud of the dedicated nursing program faculty and staff for completing the rigorous process of building a brand new framework and curriculum for our BSN and their tenacity to meet all of the Board of Nursing’s requirements for a stellar program,” said Dr. Laurence B. Alexander, Chancellor of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.

“Under the leadership of Diann Williams, the chair of the nursing program, we are pleased to shepherd students through the exacting process of gaining the knowledge and skills needed to pass the NCLEX-RN.”

Students interested in enrolling in the University’s BSN program should contact (870) 575-8222 to request the application packet, information on admission testing and other requirements for admission to the upper division nursing courses.

The addition of the BSN is one of many academic enhancements UAPB has made within the last year. Others include the opening of the STEM Building and Conference Center, a new Fitness Center, expansion of the Summer Learning Institute and Opportunities for New Students (LIONS) Program, as well as the enhanced reimaging and marketing activity. These additions have created increased interest in UAPB, as student applications for the fall 2015 semester have surged by more than 30 percent.
