State Oversight

The Arkansas State Board of Nursing has not received any complaints within the past year about NorthWest Arkansas Community College’s nursing program, according to Sue Tedford, board director.

All Arkansas nursing programs leading to licensure must be approved by the Board of Nursing in order for their graduates to be eligible for licensure as a nurse. Once a program has obtained full approval, it is reviewed every five years; however, if issues arise in between visits, the Board of Nursing may review the program at that time, Tedford said.
