Academics


Transforming health and health systems through service, discovery and knowledge, the College of Nursing prepares students to provide patient-centered care for all, including an emphasis on the underserved and most vulnerable populations of Texas.

Customized academic opportunities

The College of Nursing provides balanced and specialized degree programs at the undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate level tailored to meet the needs of new and experienced nurses. Our graduates have the opportunity to advance their education through clinical experience, simulated training with standardized patients and interdisciplinary collaborations with the Texas A&M University System and beyond.
