In order to qualify for licensure as a nurse in any state in the United States, an individual must graduate from a board approved nursing program. The Arkansas Board of Nursing has set minimum standards that each educational program must meet in order to obtain initial approval and maintain continued board approval. These standards can be found in the Rules, Chapter 6.
