Types of Nursing School Programs Available

Take a good look at the list of nursing programs below, they include everything — associates degrees, BSN, MSN and even a few quite rare nursing diploma programs. For working nurses you'll find schools that even offer evening and weekend programs. Fast-track your LPN or RN to a next-level BSN or MSN. If that still fails to offer the convenience you need, look to an online degree or certificate program.

Salary and Jobs for Nurses in Arkansas

Working RNs earn on average a base pay between $50,000 and $60,000 in Little Rock *, one of the largest metro areas in the state. You need to realize that salaries for LPNs and RNs vary greatly and are based on factors that include: level of education, years of experience, practice specialty, facility and location. For example, the above salary metric is likely one of the higher due to the metro location. But nurses that go on to earn advanced practice specialties like nurse anesthetists, nurse practitioners, nurses midwives and clinical nurse specialists all earn considerably more in most cases.

Don't sweat looking for a good nursing job in Arkansas. You can almost write your own ticket in many areas, rural or urban. Nearly every type of patient care facility is looking. Of course large hospitals remain some of the biggest employers of nurses, especially RNs, which means you can hop into an instant specialty right out of school. If you have a bit of flexibility, why not explore your options for travel nursing in Arkansas or RN positions that offer per diem rates — you'll earn considerably more with these options.
