UTA Expanding

The University of Texas at Arlington's College of Nursing and Health Innovation will offer five of its graduate nursing degrees online beginning in spring 2017, a move that is expected to significantly heighten opportunities for registered nurses to enhance their careers.

The degrees include four master's and one doctorate degree, the Doctor of Nursing Practice or DNP. The four master's of science in nursing degrees have nurse practitioner specialties in pediatric primary care, pediatric acute care, adult gerontology acute care and adult gerontology primary care. The college also will continue to offer these degrees in traditional classroom settings.

"Making these degrees available online will give expanded access to experienced nurses looking to enhance their careers with a quality, flexible and affordable education from one of the nation's leading nursing programs," said Anne Bavier, dean of the College of Nursing and Health Innovation.

The online graduate programs offer students accelerated 100 percent online coursework, multiple start dates per year and mentoring opportunities by nursing faculty.
