Through the Academic Partnerships program, the UTA College of Nursing and Health Innovation and College of Education are introducing an innovative, distributed learning program. Academic Partnerships is in step with the innovation that has become UTA’s hallmark. This initiative provides health care providers and school districts with accessible and affordable learning for nurses to complete their BSN and teachers to obtain a master’s degree at UTA. This breakthrough, scalable model makes it possible for tuition per student to be reduced to make education more affordable and accessible. The 9- to 18-month programs are based on manageable courses that can be completed while students continue to work.
Our College of Education is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). NCATE is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and numerous national organizations as the accrediting body for universities that prepare teachers and other professional personnel for work in P-12 schools. NCATE ensures that accredited institutions hold high standards and produce competent, caring, and highly qualified educators and administrators who have proven they can support the learning of all students.
Additionally, the UTA College of Nursing and Health Innovation is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
