Anyone know if they offer one? I looked all throughout their website but couldn't find anything. Just want to make sure that I did not overlook it.

Thanks!

I don't think so. I went to shsu for 2 yrs before starting nursing school at a community college and i dont ever remember hearing anything about it.

Thanks so much for the info! I know that Huntsville Memorial has the Joe Davis program but I was really surprised that SHSU did not have one.

SHSU does not have a nursing program i went there for 3 yrs and then to nursing school. They have a Pre-professional nursing program which is basically the pre-req's for nursing school. They only have 1 hospital and it's not that close to the university so I think it would be hard to have a nursing program like the one's in houston and dallas. But huntsville is a growing city so i guess anything is possible.

Hi Everyone, just thought that I would drop a line in regards to whether Sam Houston has a nursing program. I contacted the medical department at the school and was told that they are supposed to be starting the application process at the end of this summer to start next Spring 2011. She told me that they would be updating their site soon, but they haven't yet and this was about a month ago that I got the information. According to the site the proposed bachelors program would be in their new medical center that they are putting in at the school and that the clinicals would be in Houston at Memorial Hermann. But this is mainly info off of their site and what I was told through email by one of the counselors at the school.

I'm in the same boat as a lot of you have been. We live on Lake Livingston and I've been having to drive to Kingwood to take courses at the Lone Star community college to try to get into the associates program, considering that all of the 4 year universities in the Houston area are downtown or you have to drive to College Station to go to A&M.

Does anyone have any opinion in regards to the differences between getting an associates vs bachelors? Are you better off with a bachelors or does it really matter?

Thanks in advance.

as for the bachelors, its only important should you want to be a nursing manager or futher your education by becoming a NP, CRNA ect.

They do have a nursing program starting in Jan 2011. The next time they will admit will be for the Jan 2012 semester and then every semester after that. They are not yet accredited but they will be.

They are accredited through the CCNE, and given initial approval through the TBON. Visit their website for more clarity.
