The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) is a public university in the Texas Medical Center. It was established in 1972 as part of the University of Texas System, which includes ten campuses throughout the state. UTHealth is organized into six schools, including the Cizik School of Nursing. The nursing school is ranked as one of the top schools for graduate nursing programs in the nation. It is housed in a 195,000-square-foot facility featuring high-tech classrooms and state-of-the-art simulation labs. UTHealth is also invested in research, working with local facilities to improve public health care and cure diseases.
Six nursing programs are offered at the UTHealth Cizik School of Nursing. These options include traditional BSN, accelerated BSN, RN to BSN, MSN, DNP, and Ph.D. programs. All programs are accredited by the CCNE. Students who want to enroll in the traditional BSN program must complete the prerequisite courses, which includes four semesters of courses. When the prerequisite courses are completed, the BSN track takes four semesters to complete. It includes a combination of classroom and clinical training with students performing full-time clinical rotations during their final 16 weeks. The RN to BSN program features flexible options including a 100% online program.
