Arkansas Tech University and National Park College have partnered to offer a Bachelor degree in Nursing on the NPC campus.

Bachelor's Degree in Nursing (RN to BSN Program)

The program is designed to be completed in one calendar year: Spring entry beginning in January or Summer entry beginning in June. Deadlines to apply are October 1st for Spring admission and March 1st for Summer admission.

You can complete your BSN anywhere and anytime as long as you have access to a computer.

Five online nursing courses, two approved nursing electives (online or classroom), and two online courses with practicum/clinical components completed in your home community.

The first online course (NURN 4002) is designed to give you the computer and online tools to successfully complete this program. Each of the courses builds on the previous course work, so the work is not duplicated across courses.

Once accepted the RN-BSN student is required to attend orientation day on campus the week before the first semester begins.
