Welcome to the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Nursing at Amarillo.
With the increasing shortage of well-trained nurses in Texas and across the country,
our school is committed to creating possibilities that prepare nursing students to
meet the challenges of today's complex health care environment. We offer many options
in nursing education, and you'll never have to leave Amarillo.
The Second Degree BSN program offers a bachelor's degree in nursing to those who have a bachelor's degree in any
field and meet certain admissions requirements. This 12-month accelerated, alternate-entry
BSN program uses new technologies in clinical competence assessment and web-based
curriculum. Students will gain clinical experience on-site.
The Veteran to BSN program is an accelerated program which allows veterans with prior military medical training
and experience to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. The VBSN program
is open to veterans from all branches of the service and is designed to build on the
education and experience of the veteran with a system of assessment that will allow
for advanced placement in the curriculum based upon demonstration of knowledge and
skill. This accelerated 12-month program has online classes with clinical instruction
guided by assigned clinical coaches and nursing clinical faculty.
The RN to BSN web-based program is customized for a registered nurse to earn a bachelor's degree
in nursing in two semesters. Students fulfill all didactic requirements online and
clinical hours are completed within your community. This program is for the busy RN

for roles in administration and nursing management.
Various Graduate Programs are available to BSN-prepared nurses who want to pursue a master's degree or post-master's
certificate. The Doctorate of Nursing Practice offers master's-prepared nurses and nurse practitioners pathways for higher education.
