Nurse Journal: Social Community for Nurses Worldwide
Description of Organizations Services:
In the years to come, our country is projected to experience a shortage of nurses that will only be aggravated by the aging Baby Boomer generation. Considering nurses' contributions to the entire medical industry, the impact would degrade our society's health at large. It's increasingly more important than ever to encourage individuals to pursue or advance their careers in nursing.

However, the variety of degree and certificate options, and all the acronyms that come with them can make the nursing field difficult to navigate. In order to help alleviate the confusion, the team at curated a streamlined series of guides breaking down degree types, bachelor's program requirements, and flexible degree options. You can check them out below:

Earning a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing Series:
Earning a BSN
Perks of Earning a BSN
Alternatives to a BSN

In order for our healthcare system - and more broadly, our society - to be able to address the needs of its people, we need well-trained nurses to counteract the shortage. We researched these guides to help nurses advance their careers for the betterment of both their lives and their communities.

As a service to the citizens of Arkansas, the College of Pharmacy operates the Arkansas Poison Control Center. This center is supported through a direct appropriation from the Arkansas Legislature. The mission of the Poison Center is to provide confidential, accurate and up-to-date treatment information on thousands of different poisons and poison situations.

Efforts are made to make the Center accessible to all the citizens of Arkansas. The Center is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to the community and healthcare professionals, alike. The Center provides a toll free TTY phone line for the hearing impaired. In addition, persons speaking other languages may be assisted through the use of the AT&T Language Line Services. The Center has a developing education department that addresses both public and professional education needs. The purpose of this department is to educate the public on methods of poison prevention and to educate healthcare professionals on proper treatment of poison situations.

Resources of the Center include cutting edge computer software programs like Poisindex and Toxicall, and access to primary, secondary and tertiary literature through an in-house library and the Medical Center Library.
