"Nurses are the heart of healthcare." - Donna Wilk Cardillo
The University of Dallas and Texas Women's University have a cooperative agreement
that allows students to pursue a dual degree. This agreement allows students to earn two degrees, a bachelor of arts in biology from UD and the bachelor of science in nursing from TWU, in an integrated program that can be completed in five years (with the addition
of summer course work). Students will get the best of both: the breadth and wisdom of the UD Core curriculum
and the experience and technical expertise of TWU's nursing program, graduating as
liberally educated health care professionals. TheTWU College of Nursingprepares nurses for practice, teaching, management and research. With more than 3,200
nursing students at its Denton, Dallas and Houston campuses, TWU is a leading provider
of nursing education and preparation.
The Course Work
The total number of credit hours in the suggested curriculum is 174, with 100 credit
hours taken at UD and 74 credit hours at TWU. Students will complete nursing prerequesites
along with core requirements for an undergraduate degree from the University of Dallas
in their first three years in the program. Students will be required to apply to
TWU and the TWU Nursing program to complete their last two years of nursing coursework
and clinical experience.
Recently, the University of Dallas and TWU recommitted their partnership through signing
