ODESSA, TX (KWES) - The University of Texas of the Permian Basin has launched a new program expected to help with the shortage of nurses.

It will help meet the needs of working RN's and address the shortage of BSN prepared nurses across the state.

The program can be completed in as little as 12 months and it's one of the most affordable in the United States.

Enrollment is already open for the program.

The first class begins on May 9.
