Nursing at The Longview University Center


Longview University Center

One of the Most Respected Degree Programs in Texas Right Here in Longview! 

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree is for beginning and licensed (LVN) students. The University of Texas at Tyler College of Nursing prepares graduates to meet health care needs as generalists, educators, researchers, administrators and advanced practitioners.

As a student you will attend traditional face-to-face courses in Longview that are led by full-time, fully accredited, on-site faculty members, and clinical experiences will be conducted in the region close to campus. In addition to traditional science and anatomy courses, students in the BSN program complete classes in communication, leadership, management and critical thinking. This knowledge provides graduates with more job opportunities, higher pay, and it is vital for individuals who want to eventually move into advanced health care careers. You will also experience cost-savings and convenience while receiving your degree from UT Tyler.
