UT Tyler Roadmap to Success

Roadmap to Success


Choosing to become a nurse is one of the best decisions in life you will ever make. Few professions offer as many choices of where to work and areas to specialize in as nursing.

The vast range of nursing specialties is almost as varied as the nurses' personalities. No matter what type of person you are, there is a place in nursing for you.

Recent nursing school graduates enjoy some of the highest starting salaries compared to peers in other industries. Most nurses work in doctors' offices, hospitals, and outpatient facilities. Other benefits include:

  • Flexible schedules.
  • Locations around the globe.
  • An exciting, lifelong career.

This Roadmap to Success was created by Trinity Valley Community College and The University of Texas at Tyler Palestine Campus to provide the details necessary for you to earn a vocational certificate or a bachelor of science degree in nursing in an efficient and affordable way, close to home.
