Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi is one of ten campuses in the Texas A&M University System. The university began life as the University of Corpus Christi in 1947. It was a private university established by the Baptist General Convention of Texas. After the campus was mostly destroyed by a hurricane in 1970, the university was sold to the state. In 1989, it joined the Texas A&M University System. There are currently 33 undergraduate programs and 25 graduate programs available at the university, including a variety of nursing programs. These programs are offered through the College of Nursing and Health Sciences.

Several BSN pathways are available, including traditional BSN, accelerated BSN, and RN to BSN programs. The university also offers an MSN program and an RN to MSN program. These programs are accredited by the CCNE. The traditional BSN program is a four-year program while the accelerated program is designed to be completed in four semesters. The accelerated program is for students who already have bachelor’s degrees with a non-nursing major. The courses are offered online and on campus, providing a hybrid learning experience. The RN to BSN program is for registered nurses with diplomas or associate’s degrees and is completed entirely online with no on-campus classes.
