Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Nursing

Welcome to the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Nursing. With the increasing shortage of well-trained nurses in Texas and across the country, our school is committed to creating possibilities that prepare nursing students to meet the challenges of today's complex health care field. We offer many options in nursing education.

The Traditional BSN program offers unique opportunities for students who are not registered nurses to receive the latest state-of-the-art nursing education. Combined with the expertise of nationally recognized faculty and the opportunity to work with other health care professionals, students receive an education that prepares them to be nursing leaders.

The Second Degree BSN program offers a bachelor's degree in nursing to those who have a bachelor's degree in any field and meet certain admissions requirements. This 12-month accelerated, alternate-entry BSN program uses new technologies in clinical competence assessment and web-based curriculum.

The RN to BSN web-based program is customized for a registered nurse to earn a bachelor's degree in nursing in two semesters. Students fulfill all didactic requirements online and clinical hours are completed within your community. This program is for the busy RN who wants to advance in the nursing profession. BSN-prepared nurses are sought after for roles in administration and nursing management.

The Veteran to BSN Program leads to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing for veterans with prior military medical training and experience who want to pursue a career in nursing. The program adopts a method of assessment that recognizes the veteran's training and experience toward earning credit for the degree. The program is web-based, using a clinical coach model to support learning.

Various Graduate Programs are available to BSN-prepared nurses who want to pursue a master's degree or post-master's certificate.

Graduate Certificates are interprofessional online graduate level programs. Upon completion of the certificate program, graduates will have the necessary knowledge and skills to excel in a variety of settings in medically underserved areas around the world.

The Doctorate of Nursing Practice offers master's-prepared nurses and nurse practitioners pathways for higher education.
