Undergraduate Nursing Department Programs

College Of Nursing and Health Sciences

The philosophical foundations of the Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Nursing Program are based on the belief that caring is the essence of nursing. Students are unique individuals with differing backgrounds, needs and interests, and have the freedom and responsibility to make considered choices. Nursing faculty subscribe to the belief that professional nurses must have a solid foundation in the arts, sciences and humanities that provides a reservoir of knowledge from which to draw when making critical clinical decisions in the roles of care provider or care coordinator (A.A.C.N., Essentials of Baccalaureate Nursing, 1998).


The Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences (BSHS) prepares graduates for a variety of career opportunities in the health care field by providing the management skills necessary for success. By designing a degree plan using electives in such areas as computer science, geographic information systems, mathematics, business administration, accounting, international business, and information systems, the student may pursue specific areas of interest.

Students work with the Undergraduate Academic Advisors to obtain information related to admissions for the desired program of study. The academic advisor can be contacted through e-mail, by phone or through the Academic advising webpage.
