"Nurses are the heart of healthcare." - Donna Wilk Cardillo
The cooperative degree plan in nursing establishes a public-private partnership that
unites the resources of one of the finest nursing programs in the country, that of
Texas Woman's University (TWU), with those of one of the country's best liberal arts
colleges, the University of Dallas. Students will earn two degrees, a bachelor of
arts degree in biology from UD and the bachelor of science degree in nursing from
TWU, in an integrated program that can be completed in five years.
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 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, and graduate as liberally educated health care professionals.
The TWU College of Nursing prepares nurses for practice, teaching, management and research. With more than 3,200
nursing students at its Denton, Dallas and Houston campuses, TWU is the states leading
provider of new graduates preparing to become registered nurses.
