History

Since its inception in 2008, more than 900 exemplary baccalaureate and master’s prepared nurses have graduated from Texas A&M College of Nursing. Agreements with more than 350 clinical sites offer students real-world experience in hospital and clinical settings while facilitating teamwork, respect and understanding of these professional settings.

Upholding the land-grant service tradition of Texas A&M University, the College of Nursing continues to educate highly skilled Aggie nurses dedicated to providing patient-centered care, leading nursing research and serving their communities. A commitment to innovative teaching practices that encourage interdisciplinary learning, College of Nursing faculty, staff and students demonstrate a vested interest in positively impacting the ever-changing landscape of health care. With academic education campuses in Bryan-College Station and Round Rock as well as distance learning through online programs, the college offers accessible training and education to meet the demand for registered nurses and advanced education as nurse educators, family nurse practitioners and forensic nurses.

The Office for Nursing Research, established in 2018, helps faculty strategically seek funding opportunities, increase interdisciplinary collaborations and advance opportunities in translating research into practice. Active research areas include cancer prevention and screening, women’s health, childhood obesity, health law and ethics, intimate partner violence, public health nursing and forensic nursing.
