The Practical Nursing and Registered Nursing programs at ASUN strive to be among the elite of healthcare professional programs in Northeast Arkansas. Our overall goal for all students is to function and participate as an effective member of the healthcare community and to support clients in the achievement of positive healthcare outcomes. We offer our Practical Nursing program on the Newport, Jonesboro, and Marked Tree campuses. We offer our Registered Nursing program on the Newport campus as a member of the Arkansas Rural Nursing Education Consortium (ARNEC).
Students who have completed a healthcare certificate or degree from ASUN have gained employment at healthcare facilities such as St. Bernards Medical Center, NEA Baptist Medical Center, White River Medical Center, Public Health Department, Amedisys, Unity Health-Harris Hospital and Unity Health-White County Medical Center.
If you are interested in a rewarding healthcare profession, apply now and be a member of your community's healthcare nursing team. All nursing programs require the student to submit an application to both the college and to the nursing program. The student must be accepted into the program before the student will be allowed to take courses.
