A progressive and dynamic learning environment builds on the foundation of the nursing experience and the credentials that students bring to the program. The full time faculty in the department of nursing holds doctoral degrees in their field and many have specialty certification as well. The faculty join with area professionals to offer an in-depth curriculum emphasizing clinical experience, critical thinking, and leadership. UT nursing faculty focus on teaching and learning excellence.
Classes are taught by full-time faculty (not graduate assistants) who are active practitioners in the same field they teach. They help students research their interests and goals with an appreciation for individual differences. Each student is assigned a faculty advisor who monitors his or her progress throughout the program. Small classes promote active learning. A high priority is placed on the mentoring role of faculty and a low student/faculty ratio demonstrates the department's strong commitment to personal development. The faculty maintains close contact with alumni, applauding their endeavors and professional achievements.
