We’re considered one of the best nursing programs in the nation and a leading provider of high quality graduates. We produce graduates who balance science with the art of patient care.

We would love for you to join us.

You’ll be part of a network of health care professionals spanning TWU campuses in Denton, Dallas and Houston and your time here would produce more than a degree. It will transform you into the best version of yourself, able to provide the best to those entrusted to your care.

You will graduate knowing you have developed the competence to safely care for patients, contribute to the quality of health systems that employ you, and to lead teams in accomplishing outcomes.

Our Academic Programs

We offer undergraduate and graduate nursing programs in three formats at TWU: face-to-face, online or a hybrid of both. The Baccalaureate degree program in nursing, the Master of Science degree program in nursing and Doctor of Nursing Practice degree program at Texas Woman’s University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, 655 K Street, NW, Suite 750, Washington, DC 20001, 202-887-6791.

One Program, Three Locations

The location may differ from Denton to Dallas to Houston but the academic rigor of our programs remains the same. There are three front doors to an education from TWU’s College of Nursing and a robust online presence:
