Dean's Message

Welcome to the website of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences (CONHS).

We are committed to 'transforming healthcare leaders through innovation, research & practice". Our nursing programs have been in existence since the early 70's when we were the first in the nation to have a RN to BSN program accredited in a upper-level university.  The graduate programs were added in the 80's and in 1990 we began our pre-licensure program. We became a College of Nursing and Health Sciences in 2004 with an enrollment of approximately 650 students (pre nursing/health sciences and those actively in programs). As of Fall 2015, we have over 2000 students in pre-nursing and health science courses and in the programs of nursing and health sciences. In the fall of 2016 we are approved to begin a postmaster's DNP. The CONHS's nursing programs are approved by the Board of Nursing in Texas and accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The Southern Accreditation Commission accredits the university.

Are you thinking of nursing as a profession? Nursing can offer professional opportunities that are both personally and financially rewarding. Learn more about nursing and how to get started on your nursing career. If you’re already a nurse, but ready for a change of pace, you may be interested in advancing your professional opportunities by enrolling in one of our many programs, RN to BSN, RN to MSN, MSN with focus in Nursing Education, Leadership in Nursing Systems, and Nurse Practitioner.
