The UAA School of Nursing offers nursing programs at several levels. There are special options for LPNs to earn an AAS degree and become a Registered Nurse. Professional nursing (preparation for being a Registered Nurse) is offered at the Baccalaureate and Associate degree levels. The Associate Degree (AAS) prepares graduates for practice in structured care settings such as hospitals. AAS graduates may also choose to advance their career through the baccalaureate completion program. The Baccalaureate program (BS) prepares graduates to practice in structured and unstructured settings (e.g. public health). Baccalaureate graduates are eligible to apply for graduate study in one of five specialty options offered at UAA. The options are: Family Nurse Practitioner, Psych-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, Nursing Education, Community Health, and Nursing Administration.
