The following resources are available to ensure our students can find useful information during their college careers as well as after graduation.
Undergraduate School of Nursing Handbook
The student handbook for nursing majors was developed by a student-faculty committee from nursing, incorporating suggestions received from students, faculty and administrators. It is designed to inform nursing majors regarding nursing policy, and to assist the students in their educational planning.
Graduate information Guide (GIG)
The Graduate Information Guide (GIG) for graduate nursing majors was developed by a student-faculty committee from nursing, incorporating suggestions received from students, faculty and administrators. It is designed to inform nursing majors regarding nursing policy, and to assist the students in their educational planning.
Hepatitis B immunizations are available through the Student Health Center located on campus. Call for appointment at 870-972-2054. The series of 3 injections is offered as a combination of HEP A and HEP B. Cost is approximately $50.00 per injection.
Students entering nursing programs are required to have completed a Health Care Provider CPR course (i.e., adult, infant, and child with AED). This course may be obtained at the local Red Cross, American Heart Association, or an approved facility. A card or letter demonstrating completion of the course must be presented to the School of Nursing. This letter or card is required of all beginning nursing students (AASN and BSN). Annual proof of continued certification for the entire academic year is required. It is the students’ responsibility to maintain current CPR certification. If not current the student will not be allowed to remain in clinical. Additional information will be provided in clinical orientations in each nursing option.
Medical Malpractice Insurance
Medical malpractice insurance, also known as “Professional Liability Insurance,” covers a healthcare professional in a variety of ways. Almost every healthcare professional is eligible for malpractice insurance. Each student should determine his or her own needs. Arkansas State University School of Nursing has no preference on malpractice insurance providers, as long as the chosen insurance policy meets the requirements of the student's program option. Possible options for malpractice insurance are linked below.
