College of Nursing & Health Sciences

 

Accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education

Mission

The mission of College of Nursing and Health Sciences is to educate the health care providers of today and leaders of tomorrow through the provision of excellent educational programs in the professions of nursing and the health sciences. The College identifies, attracts, and graduate students of high potential, especially those from groups who have been historically under represented in Texas health care. This mission is enhanced through faculty contributions to community service, leadership, practice, and research. These responsibilities are fostered within an interdisciplinary college by promoting a sense of community and caring, through a system of shared governance.

Undergraduate

Undergraduate programs include:  the basic baccalaureate nursing program which prepares the individual at the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) level, the RN/BSN completion program and a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences degree (BSHS). The basic BSN program includes three options:  traditional face to face classes, an accelerated track for students already holding a bachelor’s degree in a field outside of nursing, and a completely on line option (eLine).  Following successful completion of all course work students are eligible to take the licensing exam for Registered Nurses.  The RN/BSN program provides baccalaureate education for the RN holding an ADN degree or a Diploma in nursing.  The Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences prepares graduates for a variety of career opportunities in the health field by providing the management skills necessary for success.

Graduate

The Graduate Nursing Department offers individuals interested in graduate nursing education opportunities to expand their scope of practice. The Master’s of Nursing curriculum prepares registered nurses for advanced clinical, educator or leadership positions that required specialized competencies. Several options are available to registered nurses for entering the MSN program. RNs who have earned a BSN degree can begin graduate course work as soon as they are admitted to the College of Nursing and Health Sciences. RNs who have not earned a BSN can move into graduate course work after completing transition courses. These courses are outlined in the RN-MSN and RN-Bridge program descriptions. The TWU-TAMUCC PhD in Nursing Cooperative program supports the development of nurse scholars for academic and research positions. Students must be admitted to the Texas Woman’s University-Denton Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing Science to participate in this cooperative.
