Thank you for your interest in supporting the College of Nursing. We are committed to educating the best prepared nurses and nurse educators, while serving the needs of the State of Texas through outreach and research.
Private support for the college is crucial, and the impact of your generosity will be felt for generations to come. All gifts, regardless of size can make a difference and are greatly appreciated.
Below are a few of the ways that you can invest in our students, faculty and in 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
- 2nd Degree BSN
- MSN-Family Nurse Practitioner
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.
