Thank you for your interest in supporting the Texas A&M College of Nursing. We are committed to educating the best prepared nurses and nurse educators, while staying true to the mission of our land grant university in serving the needs of the State of Texas through sustainable outreach and translatable research.
Private support of the college is crucial, and the impact of your generosity will be felt for generations to come. Creating a sustainable pipeline of diverse nursing students committed to providing patient-centered care and identifying future nurse leaders in clinical settings, teaching roles, research initiatives, administrative capacities and patient advocacy is key. All gifts, regardless of size, make a positive impact as we work with nursing faculty, health organizations and community leaders across Texas to help address health care challenges.
Below are a few of the ways you can invest in our students, faculty and the future of nursing:
A scholarship can often make the difference in whether a student is able to afford to go to college or to stay in school. In the College of Nursing, scholarships have the dual purpose of helping students and addressing the nursing shortage in Texas and in the nation. Scholarships are needed for students at all academic levels, including those who are working as nurses while going to school to obtain a higher degree. Your gift will transform lives, communities and the quality of care provided by professional and advance care nurses.
You may choose to support/enhance a particular academic program for which you have an interest. These may include:
- Traditional BSN
- Second Degree BSN
- MSN-Nursing Education
- MSN-Family Nurse Practitioner
- MSN-Forensic Nursing
Faculty fellowships recognize outstanding nursing faculty for their contributions to teaching, research and outreach. Faculty fellowships support the college’s efforts to attract and retain outstanding nurse educators.
Endowed chairs provide the college with the ability to recruit and retain outstanding nursing faculty. At a time when nurse educators are able to earn significantly higher salaries as practitioners, endowed chairs support the faculty and administrators who are charged with educating and preparing the next generation of nursing professionals.
