Cizik School of Nursing


At Cizik School of Nursing at UTHealth, we are dedicated to improving quality of life and shaping the future of health care by providing innovative care, educating tomorrow’s health care leaders, and conducting transformational research. We are able to do this, in large measure, thanks to supporters like you. Your contribution, no matter the size, is an investment in nursing and in the health of our community.


Whether you are passionate about health care training, stroke treatment and prevention, pediatric care, healthy aging, genetic research, or another initiative, we invite you to be part of our story by making a donation to an area you care about today! Together, we pursue our vision: “To be sought out as a thought leader for creating health solutions.”


The Dean’s Excellence Fund serves as our annual fund. It is a flexible resource that supports students, our community, and our school, as a whole, by providing current-use dollars for high-impact initiatives related to education, research, and patient care. When you make your gift today, you join us on an exciting journey by providing funding available to address urgent needs and exciting advances at a moment’s notice. Whatever the size of your gift, your generosity will make a difference.


With a growing number of patients and a shrinking nursing workforce, it is more important than ever for our school to empower the next generation of health care professionals, and we are doing just that. We are proud to be named year after year among the top graduate nursing programs in the United States. In addition, our graduates at all degree levels are in high demand. More than 90 percent of our graduates go to work in Texas, directly replenishing our own state’s nursing workforce. By supporting scholarships, you support these students as they prepare to become tomorrow’s health care leaders.
