(Patrick) #1

The top-ranked nursing program in Texas is University of Houston College of Nursing, according to RegisteredNursing.org, a nursing advocacy organization dedicated to promoting excellence in nursing.

The organization made its selection based on the programs that supports students towards licensure and beyond. They ranked the top 50 nursing programs in Texas by analyzing current and historical pass rates of the Registered Nurse National Council Licensure Examination.

UH College of Nursing boasts a 100 percent pass rate for the last three years, placing the program in the top 5 percent in the nation. The scores were very close to perfect for two years prior to that.

“As one of the newer baccalaureate programs in the state of Texas, we’ve had a remarkable five years of growth and excellence,” said Kathryn Tart, professor and founding dean of the college.

New nursing college named top program in Texas


The nursing school is small, with only 11 undergraduates enrolled at the start of the 2017-2018 school year, but over the past three years, all of its students passed the National Council of State Boards Licensure Exam for Registered Nurses.

“We have the most amazing faculty and staff who teach and guide our students,” Kathryn Tart, professor and founding dean of the College of Nursing, said in an email. “The expertise of the faculty is unparalleled, and we also have outstanding clinical partners where our students practice nursing.”

This success has led to it being named as the top nursing program in Texas for 2018 from the advocacy organization RegisteredNursing.org.
