The curriculum of the Richard and Lucille DeWitt School of Nursing allows for individual planning and is based on the mission statement and core values. The curriculum plan includes courses in general education, science and the humanities, and a nursing core. The curriculum exposes students to each of the major practice areas of nursing; clinical practice aids in development of skill competencies.
The baccalaureate program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing and the Texas Board of Nursing. Upon successful completion, students may apply to take the state licensure exam.
*Specified cognates must be completed with at least a grade of C for acceptance into the nursing program.
The model curriculum outline can be manipulated to meet student needs. Some courses have specific prerequisites. For questions or concerns, consult your advisor.
