Nursing Graduate Programs

For more than 40 years the School of Nursing has been transforming exceptional students into nurses who forever change the lives of others and the communities in which they live. As part of the Oxley College of Health Sciences, our faculty and students collaborate, research and learn the best practices that advance the science and art of nursing.


The future of healthcare depends on strong leadership from excellent clinicians. The graduate nursing programs at TU provide this education through rigorous didactic and clinical experiences that prepare nurses to provide care and lead change into the future. The School of Nursing offers cutting edge Advanced Practice Nursing graduate programs that culminate with the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree.

Our programs are taught by practicing experts in their fields. Students learn through active learning experiences using state of the art human patient simulation and hands on learning through facilitated on site clinical experiences. Students are matched with faculty and preceptors that will promote learning. Faculty believe that students should be free to concentrate on learning rather than the administrative work of locating preceptors.
