Through a new partnership with the Texas A&M Health Science Center, nursing students in the Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi College of Nursing and Health Sciences can pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree in the Bryan/College Station area to help address the overall nursing shortage.
The collaboration is a fast-track program for those who already have earned a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) or Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree. Participants graduate in 18 months instead of two years. Courses and clinical hours for the accelerated program are identical to the standard program with the exception of the compressed format.

In addition to the TAMU-CC nursing program, Blinn College currently offers an associate degree in nursing. Blinn utilizes hospitals and health care agencies located in the Bryan/College Station area to provide a complete educational experience.
