The Clinical Laboratory Science Program was initiated in 1976 as a Medical Technology Program on the ASU campus as a part of the Biology Department, when St. Bernard's Medical Center closed its program. Prior to that time, the program was a cooperative agreement between Arkansas State University and St. Bernard's Medical Center. In 1982, the Program was transferred to the newly formed College of Nursing and Health Professions. The BS Program from the time it began on the ASU campus in 1976 was recognized and accredited by NAACLS. In 1986, the two-year Clinical Laboratory Technician/Medical Laboratory Technician Program was started. These two Programs have continued under full NAACLS accreditation. These programs are designed to provide skilled and competent health care professionals who can serve the needs of the citizens of the state of Arkansas. Over the past three decades, the Arkansas State University Clinical Laboratory Science Programs have achieved an excellent reputation with the hospitals and clinics of northeast Arkansas and bordering states.
