The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) School of Nursing is celebrating 40 years of educating nurses. The school counts almost 2,000 students across the state and nearly 17,000 graduates as of May 2021. 

TTUHSC School of Nursing Dean Michael Evans, Ph.D., R.N., FAAN and TTUHSC Grover E. Murray Professor, attributes the growth to demand across Texas for outstanding BSN-prepared graduates. 

“We have grown from a very small first class to having students all across the state,” Evans said. “There has been a great demand, across the region and the state, that has grown over the years. That need married with our outstanding quality has caused us to grow gradually over the last 40 years.”
