Welcome to the Texas A&M University College of Nursing website. I am honored to serve as the dean, working with faculty, staff, and students to realize our vision of educating and empowering a diverse population of nurse leaders who will transform health and health systems through service, discovery, and knowledge. This is a new beginning for the College of Nursing as we celebrate the first decade (2008-18), and launch our second decade of nursing education, service, and research. A great deal was accomplished during the first ten years, and I expect to the momentum to continue.
If you are a prospective or current student, I assure you that our educational programs and specializations are top-notch, and our graduates are in high demand by employers across Texas. The traditional BSN program is offered on the Bryan-College Station and Round Rock campuses, while our RN to BSN program is online. The Master of Science program in nursing includes three specializations as nurse educator, family nurse practitioner and forensic nursing. All of these MSN options are online, with limited travel to the Bryan-College Station campus for competency assessment. Our future plans are to grow our traditional BSN enrollment in South Texas, expand the specializations in our graduate programs, and develop outstanding, innovative, and distance-accessible DNP and PhD programs.
Our strategic focus is on preparing future and advanced health professionals who improve health and access to care. We will work together to address health care needs through innovative healthcare delivery models and partnerships, and conduct impactful research that improves health and quality of life for diverse individuals, families and communities.
I joined the College of Nursing as dean on June 1, 2018, and I am proud to be a member of the Aggie family! Texas A&M’s core values of respect, excellence, leadership, loyalty, integrity and selfless service are an ideal foundation for building a career in nursing. Our students, faculty, and former students are quick to respond to serve community needs, and to partner with other organizations to work towards providing a safe and healthy world for everyone.
Thank you for your interest in Texas A&M College of Nursing.
