Texas Tech University Health Science Center
Welcome and thanks for your interest in the Collin College and Texas Tech University Health Science Center (TTUHSC) concurrent admission program. The articulations agreement between these schools will allow you to declare, during the first two years of your nursing education, that you plan to transition into the TTUHCS School of Nursing RN to BSN program upon successful completion of the ADN program. In your final semester at Collin College you will submit a formal application to the RN to BSN Program at TTUHSC. This will benefit you in that once you complete your ADN education you will have provisional entrance into the School of Nursing’s RN to BSN program. Upon passage of the NCLEX-RN licensure exam and the class titled, “Issued and Trends in Nursing,” in the RN to BSN degree plan the provisional status will be lifted. One other benefit is that once you are an ADN you can inform prospective employers that you have been accepted into the RN to BSN program at TTUHSC.
Many employers are currently requiring that nurses are earning or have earned their BSN as condition of employment. Also, the critical thinking and leadership skills you will learn in the RN to BSN program will make you more marketable to current or potential employers. The information you need to make an informed decision is below.
Financial Aid is available once the provisional status is lifted and may be accessed at (Lists URL for financial aid and Hyperlink). Students will be under a provisional status until licensed as a registered nurse and upon successful completion of NURS 4381, “Issues and Trends in Nursing,” in the RN to BSN degree plan.
