Texas A&M University-Texarkana’s nursing program was recently ranked as the 3rd best nursing program in Texas by Incredible Health, sitting behind only The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
The rankings were made using specific data from each university’s nursing program, including graduation rate, National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) passing rates, Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) accreditation, programs offered, and tuition costs.
The nursing program at A&M-Texarkana boasts a 100% NCLEX passing rate for each of the past three graduating classes. The NCLEX is designed to test the competency of nursing school graduates in the U.S. and Canada, and is developed by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. Both the bachelor’s and master’s in nursing programs at A&M-Texarkana are accredited by the CCNE, an autonomous national accreditation agency as recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education.
“I think this ranking speaks volumes about the quality of our nursing program as well as the quality of the professors who teach the classes,” said A&M-Texarkana President Dr. Emily Cutrer. “If you add our high rate of passing the licensure exam to the fact that we have one of the lowest four-year tuition rates in Texas, A&M-Texarkana offers a tremendous value to nursing students.”
