Nursing

"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.
