Nursing Education - Texas Tech Health

I chose to pursue nursing because of a simple desire to help others. Every day I get to be an advocate for my patients, as well as getting to be their first line of defense and first line of comfort.

TTUHSC Alumni ’19 

Texas Tech Health is represented by thousands of nurses across West Texas that serve with kindness and intelligence. Many of our graduates work at local hospitals that are official partners of Texas Tech Physicians, our university’s medical practice. This means patients receive collaborative and expert care from highly skilled nurses in hospitals that we trust.

Even outside of partner hospitals, patients receive the best care from our nurses wherever they go. Our graduates not only have the knowledge and skills that prepare them for the field, but a mindset based in continuous professional development and growth. We challenge students to go beyond their comfort zone to expand their understanding of the profession and prepare them for the field. From the beginning of their time at TTUHSC, nursing students learn to extend their reach beyond a classroom. Our nursing school provides hands-on experience for students and has delivered service to almost 7200 patients through nurse-led clinics. From free clinical care through the Combest Center to global health initiatives, our students channel their passion for serving others into a mission-driven career that helps heal patients and influence the future of nursing.
