The half-century tradition of nursing education at Arkansas Tech University will continue after the Arkansas State Board of Nursing granted continued full approval of the ATU Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree during a meeting on Sept. 7.
“The continuing success of the ATU Department of Nursing can be attributed to our faculty, staff and community partners,” said Dr. Shelly Daily, head of the ATU Department of Nursing and professor of nursing. “Our goal is to support student success while looking forward to make positive impacts to health care within our own community, state and beyond.”
The ATU Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree was initiated in 1975. According to the ATU Department of Nursing web page, ATU’s nursing curriculum is “designed to prepare students for beginning professional responsibilities in a variety of health care settings and to provide the necessary foundations for degree advancement and graduate study.”
The ATU Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and the ATU Master of Science in Nursing degree in administration and emergency management are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.
