TSC Announces Opening of New Nursing Program
BROWNSVILLE, Texas (Jan. 24, 2019) – The Texas Board of Nursing (TBON) unanimously granted Texas Southmost College (TSC) initial approval to establish a new Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) education program during a public meeting of the TBON at Austin on Jan. 24, 2019. TSC’s new ADN program will begin in fall 2019.
“The re-opening of TSC’s ADN program was one of the priorities of the college and the board of trustees, and we’re excited to have achieved it,” TSC Board of Trustees Chair Adela Garza said. “TSC’s nursing program has a long history and tradition at the college and within our community, and we’ve brought it back home.”
TSC’s ADN program will re-open with a maximum cohort of 24 students in August for the fall 2019 semester, and will accept another cohort of 24 students for spring 2020. The nursing program will begin to accept applications for fall 2019 in March. The application deadline for fall 2019 is May 25.
