School of Nursing and Health Sciences
Currently, the School of Nursing and Health Sciences is part of the College of Education and Human Services. This school is comprised of two departments – Department of Nursing and Department of Health and Human Performance. The role of the School of Nursing and Health Sciences as it develops is to provide an organizational structure that promotes personal educational experiences for students in nursing and other health sciences by providing high levels of focused programming and opportunities for students to collaboratively engage with each other and the wider society.
Partnerships between area hospitals, corporate and community agencies, as well as area schools and the SNHS will nurture the intellectual, cultural, social, and economic vitality of Texans through health and wellness related projects and services. Existing community and global health initiatives in the Department of Nursing and the Department of Health and Human Performance are expected to grow and develop within the nurturing environment of the School of Nursing and Health Sciences.
After the 2015 biennium legislative session, Texas A&M Commerce received funding from the Texas legislature for a new School of Nursing and Health Sciences building. This new building will provide state of art instructional space for our students in these programs.
