The UTEP School of Nursing prepares advanced practice registered nurses in the role of the nurse practitioner for either primary or secondary (acute) care.


The School of Nursing at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), views nursing as a professional service discipline grounded in the arts, sciences, humanities, and the application of knowledge obtained through scientifically based inquiry.

The Nursing Faculty promote and adhere to a paradigm of caring that addresses holistic human responses throughout the age continuum. This paradigm includes education, practice and research that encompasses provision of care, coordination of care, and professionalism.

While the faculty subscribe to a variety of theoretical frameworks reflecting adaptation, self-care, transcultural, and humanistic aspects, we believe that the essence of nursing is caring.
