Nurses do more than just give medicine and treat wounds; they care about patients, helping improve lives, and disease outcomes. Nursing is a vital component to the health and well being of people all around the world.
Of course, helping people is just one of the many perks of being a nurse. Here in Texas, 24 percent employment growth is projected for registered nurses through 2026 – that’s even higher than the national average of 15 percent!*
If your dream is to become a nurse, Western Technical College can help make that dream a reality. Our Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program is a full-time, face-to-face program that takes just under 3 years to complete from start to finish.
