Globally, the nursing profession is celebrating a milestone in 2020, as the World Health Organization declares it the International Year of the Nurse. Due to the covid-19 pandemic, nurses are making enormous sacrifices in these challenging times. UA Cossatot is proud to celebrate nurses everywhere and is pleased to help educate future nurses into this noble profession.

Like all students, UA Cossatot’s nursing students have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.  They have been working remotely online and were recently allowed to finish their classes this spring semester on campus in a restricted safety environment.

In the spring of 2020, UA Cossatot had 44 students enrolled in its LPN program and 32 students enrolled in its RN program. Nursing is the college’s most popular program, and it is a profession that has a bright job outlook.  

UA Cossatot offers an 11-month LPN day program at De Queen, an 18-month LPN evening program at Nashville, and an 11-month ARNEC RN program in the evening at both the De Queen and Nashville campuses. The college’s Office of Continuing Education also offers a CNA training program to prepare students for the CNA licensure exam.

UA Cossatot has been awarding nursing degrees to nursing students for years and plans to do so for years to come. To learn more about UA Cossatot’s nursing program, contact Christina Cooper at
