Tarrant County College/TTUHSC SON RN-BSN Concurrent Enrollment Program | Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center

Tarrant County College + TTUHSC SON RN-BSN Concurrent Enrollment Program

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Tarrant County College and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) RN to BSN Concurrent Enrollment Program. The concurrent enrollment agreement between these schools will allow you to finish your BSN through the TTUHSC School of Nursing RN to BSN program, while concurrently enrolled in the Tarrant County College Associate Degree in Nursing Program.  Upon the successful completion of your ADN program, and along with meeting the eligibility and admission requirements for the TTUHSC School of Nursing RN to BSN program, you can complete your BSN in as little as one semester. (See our Eligibility and Admission Requirements below.)

Many employers are currently requiring that RNs be enrolled in a baccalaureate program of study or have earned their BSN as a condition of employment. Employers' reasoning is based on clinical research that has demonstrated the professional level of knowledge gained through baccalaureate education has a major impact on improving patient outcomes. The education you receive from TTUHSC School of Nursing will prepare you to become a leader, innovator and discoverer. This website is designed to give you the information you need to make an informed decision.
