nursesThe Harris College is vibrant and thriving with new programs, innovative curricula, and students and faculty who are making a difference for others. The Harris College houses Nursing, Social Work, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Kinesiology, and Nurse Anesthesia, and is home to over 800 undergraduate students, 250 graduate students, 63 full time faculty, 19 staff, and numerous part time field and clinical faculty.

What makes us so good at what we do?The role of nursing is clear: delivering health care so that people may live full enriched lives. Nurses are the liaisons among doctors, patients and other members of the health care team. Studying nursing at TCU puts you in the center of a dynamic career field at a time when the need for health care is rising and the supply of nurses is dwindling.

  • Get to the point of health care beginning your sophomore year, with clinical experience in nationally recognized medical hospitals, community health agencies, schools and long-term care facilities.
  • Earn automatic clinical placement into the nursing program your freshman year as long as you meet selective criteria.
  • As a senior, select nursing electives that will give you advanced experience in a specialty area of nursing, such as maternity, pediatrics, community health, or psychiatric care.

Nurses have more options and flexibility than ever before. Recent TCU nursing grads are employed in home health care, churches, corporations, insurance companies, sales and marketing, e-health, military service, public health, legal consulting, education and, of course, hosptials and clinics.
