University rank #601 (WUR) Online
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.


Graduates assume roles as care providers, care coordinators, and professional leaders. They promote the health of individuals, families, and populations, the enhancement of society, and the nursing profession in the 21st century. Health care provides a dynamic environment in which there exists potential for physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being for all individuals.

Health Care Professionals practicing in this environment need to work in partnership with each other and the communities they serve. Both independent and collaborative nursing strategies are necessary components of practice.

To this end, the faculty is committed to role-modeling a multi disciplinary and interdisciplinary approach to education, practice, and research, and to developing in students a sense of awareness of fiscal and outcome aspects of the current health care market place.

The UTEP Nursing Faculty believe that the practice of Professional Nursing requires a commitment to lifelong learning. We believe that the professional nurse has the responsibility to be visionary in the promotion and improvement of caring in current as well as future health care delivery models.
