The TWU T. Boone Pickens Institute of Health Sciences - Dallas Center isn’t a traditional college campus as much as it’s an efficient environment for an excellent nursing education.
We sit in the heart of the Southwestern Medical District encompassed by four hospitals and faculty who are experts in their fields. Evidence-based scenarios, pioneering research and innovative teaching methodologies seamlessly blend here at the Houston J. and Florence A. Doswell College of Nursing.
Clinical opportunities abound in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
Dallas is where undergraduates can spend their last two years completing their nursing degree and where graduate students work in pursuit of a master’s or doctoral degree. Courses are a mix of online and face-to-face.
