Ozarka College Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) program has been ranked first in the state of Arkansas by Best Value Schools for the year 2021. Based on specific criteria, Ozarka ranked number one of 15 Arkansas LPN programs.
"We are honored to be recognized as one of the best LPN programs in the state, " said Katie Wilson, Nursing & Allied Health Division Chair. "Our nursing faculty are truly dedicated to the success of our students. This is evident as they carry out the mission of Ozarka College by providing life-changing experiences throughout students' education toward becoming a valued member of the community as a healthcare professional.

Best Value School's website states, "Along with offering a highly competitive tuition rate, Ozarka College is also a smaller school affording students smaller class size. That also is enough to earn this Melbourne program the top honors on our list of the top LPN programs in Arkansas."
"This is another great example highlighting the impressive quality of the Ozarka LPN program education, " said Dr. Richard Dawe, Ozarka College president. "Since its founding, Ozarka College has been a leader in providing nursing education in Arkansas and why it remains a signature program offering for our communities. "

The ranking methodology consisted of two important factors such as tuition rates and enrollment numbers. Each factor accounted for one-half of each program's total score. The total points were then calculated, assigned to the corresponding program, and the school was ranked according to its total point value.
