About the Program


The School of Nursing is based at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) with various regional campus locations. The School of Nursing offers the following degrees:

  • Bachelor of Science in Nursing
  • Master of Science in Nursing
  • Doctor of Nursing Practice

The School of Nursing is an integral part of the TTUHSC and is committed to improving the availability and quality of nursing care. The ultimate goal of the School of Nursing is to prepare nurses who will develop into leaders for the future as they provide competent, compassionate patient care in the rapidly changing healthcare environment. Essential to the attainment of this goal is the development of interdisciplinary approaches created when nursing, medicine, allied health, and pharmacy work together. The faculty and staff of the School of Nursing are committed to excellence in nursing education, research, practice, and service.

The School of Nursing offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree for students who are not licensed as registered nurses and an online RN to B.S.N. degree completion program for students who are licensed as registered nurses. The school also offers an online second degree accelerated B.S.N. program. This program is designed for students with baccalaureate degrees in non-nursing fields. The program goals are to prepare graduates to provide and direct care to individuals, families, and communities with complex healthcare needs in structured and unstructured settings, to prepare graduates with a professional commitment to nursing excellence for present and emerging healthcare arenas and to provide a foundation for future graduate education in nursing.

The school offers the Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) with specialties in education, administration, family nurse practitioner, adult-gerontology acute care nurse practitioner, pediatric primary care nurse practitioner, pediatric acute care nurse practitioner, nursing informatics, and nurse midwifery. The School of Nursing also offers a post-masters certificate with tracks in education, family nurse practitioner, pediatric primary care nurse practitioner, pediatric acute care nurse practitioner, adult-gerontology acute care nurse practitioner, nurse midwifery, and informatics. At the doctoral level, the school offers the Doctorate of Nursing Practice (D.N.P.). The School of Nursing program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
