Nursing

Course Overview

The role of nursing is clear: Delivering health care so that people may live full, enriched lives. Nurses are the liaisons among doctors, patients, and other members of the health care team. Studying Nursing at TCU puts you in the center of a dynamic career field at a time when the need for health care is rising and the supply of nurses is dwindling.

  • Get to the point of health care beginning your sophomore year, with clinical experience in nationally recognized medical hospitals, community health agencies, schools, and long-term care facilities.
  • Earn automatic clinical placement into the Nursing program your sophomore year, as long as you meet selective criteria.
