UT Arlington Academic Partnership Program Adds HCA Methodist Healthcare in San Antonio

The Texas Center for Nursing Workforce Studies has reported that Texas’ demand for full-time registered nurses in 2008 exceeded supply by 22,000. This gap is predicted to increase to 70,000 by 2020. Despite this shortage, Texas nursing schools routinely turn away thousands of applicants due to lack of funding, available faculty and clinical slots. The UT Arlington Academic Partnerships program is helping meet demand and close the gap.

In addition to its array of undergraduate and graduate programs, the UT Arlington College of Nursing recently launched the Professional Nursing Pathways Program to streamline the coursework for community college students who want to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from UT Arlington in as little as 13 months in the Academic Partnership RN-to-BSN program.
