The College of Nursing was established to help solve the critical statewide nursing shortage with a variety of degree options to produce more registered nurses, advanced practice nurses and nurse educators.




As members of the largest health care profession in the nation, nurses provide patient care, case management and health education. They serve as patient advocates, and establish nursing practice standards and health policy. They are leaders, collaborators and researchers in the art and science of nursing.

The College of Nursing offers a variety of degree programs for students preparing to become nurses, as well as for those who are already registered nurses and wish to advance their careers. Degrees include a Bachelor of Science in nursing and Master of Science in nursing degrees, including Nursing Education (MSN-ED), that prepare the next generation of nurses to meet the growing demand for nursing care, Forensic Nursing (MSN-FORS) that advances health, advocacy and justice through treatment of survivors of violent crimes, and Family Nurse Practitioner (MSN-FNP) that helps to meet the escalating need for primary health care in Texas. Additionally, the College of Nursing offers a Multidisciplinary Graduate Certificate program in Forensic Health Care.

With an extraordinary faculty, multiple campuses and locations, and a variety of degree tracks and online courses, the College of Nursing provides high-quality, flexible options for students balancing career, family and personal obligations. Aggie nurses foster a sense of social responsibility and global citizenship through community service and outreach.
