Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center
School of Nursing
Welcome to the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Nursing. 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 field. We offer many options in nursing education.
The Double T BSN program offers unique opportunities for students who are not yet registered nurses to receive the latest state-of-the-art nursing education. The Double T BSN program utilizes an all-new curriculum with a focus on transformational thinking that fosters the development of highly qualified and confident nursing professionals. The curriculum will enhance student ability to move from simple to complex concepts by using the flipped classroom approach: applying knowledge gained from lessons assigned ahead of class and integrating the knowledge to in-class discussions, problem-solving scenarios, and hands-on exercises. This model allows students to engage more critically with course material during lecture and discussion, ensuring a lasting understanding of nursing concepts to be used in their nursing career.
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.
The Veteran to BSN (VBSN) program offers a bachelor's degree in nursing to those who have prior military medical training and experience and meet additional admissions requirements. This 12-month accelerated program has web-based classes with clinical instruction guided by 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 who wants to advance in the nursing profession. BSN-prepared nurses are sought after 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.
