History of Undergraduate Nursing Program
The University of Texas at Tyler has provided the highest quality undergraduate education since 1975 when the first class of RN-BSN students was admitted. In 1982 the generic BSN program admitted the first class of 24 students and has grown to admitting 160 highly qualified generic students each semester. Our students are very successful on the NCLEX exam for licensure and work in multiple sites across the nation.
The School of Nursing has two distance education sites in Longview and Palestine, Texas. The distance sites are fully functional University of Texas at Tyler campuses. The Baccalaureate Program is supported by a staff of full-time nursing faculty, lab personnel, and administrative support. The availability of three campuses affords students the opportunity to access their education without long commutes to a campus and clinical sites. Nursing pre-admission counselors are available on each campus to provide guidance in the admission process.
Please take time to tour our website and we look forward to working with you as a potential student in our program.
