A Brief History of the School of Nursing A Brief History of the School of Nursing

Dean's Welcome

It is my pleasure to introduce the TTUHSC School of Nursing. Since its inception in 1979, the school has developed innovative degrees to meet the needs of Texas residents. Our School of Nursing is the only nursing school in West Texas that provides baccalaureate, master's and doctoral education.

Our first students were admitted to the Traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing four-year degree at the Lubbock campus in 1981. The School of Nursing now offers a variety of degree programs where students can earn their bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees, as well as three different post-master's certificates. There are campuses in Abilene, the Permian Basin and Lubbock that help address the nursing shortage.

As it strives to graduate expertly trained professionals into the nursing field, the School of Nursing remains focused on providing experience and education of the highest quality to its students. Our objective is to exceed national recognition of nursing standards, while developing professional skills and a service-oriented attitude to enable nursing graduates to excel in an ever-evolving field.

The School of Nursing faculty, staff and students represent our mission and vision by displaying the highest quality of ideas and education driven by leadership and innovative thinking.
