With increased demands for health care and a shrinking nursing workforce, it is more important than ever for our school to empower the next generation of nurses.
Year after year, we are among the top graduate nursing programs in the United States, and our students are in high demand across health care. Upon graduation, more than 90% stay in Texas, directly replenishing our community’s nursing workforce. By making a gift to support students today, you will help tomorrow’s nurses develop the skills and expertise to care for patients and make a big impact on health in our communities.
