Search for Nursing Schools in Dallas

  1. Hi, I was wondering if anyone could suggest some excellent nursing schools in Dallas. Right now I am living in Houston and is planning to move to Dallas. Not sure what part of Dallas yet, but I don't mind driving where ever I need to go to get what I need. I would like to find a good school to get my RN. I hope someone can help me out. Thanks for your time.

    Texas Womens RN program is actually in Dallas near Parkland, even though the University is in Denton - they have a masters level program in Denton but not a BS/RN program.

    Thank you for the clarification. I knew that Texas Women's Univ. had 3 main campuses in and around the metroplex, but wasn't sure about the RN program(s) and where they were being offered.

    Can't forget TCU (Texas Christian University) in Fort Worth! It's great... though I'm a bit biased!

    There's a campus in Plano, but the nursing classes are at the main campus in McKinney. :spin:

    Thanks for the clarification; I wasn't sure if the nursing classes were at the Spring Creek campus in Plano or the Central Park campus in McKinney.
