Message from the Dean

Nancy Fahrenwald


I am honored to serve as the dean of the Texas A&M University School of Nursing! Working with faculty and staff, our vision is to educate and empower a diverse population of future and professional nurses as leaders who will transform health and health systems through service, discovery and knowledge.

The School of Nursing community is dedicated to preparing members of the nursing workforce who understand the complexities of what makes us healthy, how to improve health, and ultimately provide access to quality health care. Our vision embraces diversity, equity and inclusion and we stand in unity with our national nursing organizations in speaking out for justice, health and safety for all people.

If you are a prospective or current student, I assure you that our educational programs and specializations are top-notch and our graduates are in high demand by employers across Texas. The Traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree track is offered on the Bryan-College Station campus and our Second Degree BSN track is offered on the Round Rock campus. The RN to BSN program is delivered 100 percent online. The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree program includes three different specializations preparing you to serve as a nurse educator, family nurse practitioner or forensic nurse. Each MSN degree option is completed online with limited travel to the Bryan-College Station campus for competency assessment. The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program is offered online to support professional nurses seeking to advance their post-master’s education in nursing to the DNP degree at Texas A&M University.

Texas A&M University’s Core Values of Respect, Excellence, Leadership, Loyalty, Integrity and Selfless Service provide the foundation for our educational programs. Our students, faculty and former students are quick to respond in service to address community needs and to partner with other organizations as we work together to provide a safe, equitable and healthy world for all.

Thank you for your interest in the Texas A&M School of Nursing. Gig ‘em!

Best regards,

Nancy Fahrenwald, PhD, RN, PHNA-BC, FAAN
Dean and Professor, School of Nursing
