There are three majors within the Nursing degree program from Texas Christian University: clinical nurse leader, nursing administration and leadership, and nursing education. There are two role focus options for nursing education majors: adult-gerontology or pediatric tracks. 


Our Nursing online programs are flexible enough to accommodate working professional nurses who do not want to put their career on hold or uproot their lives to relocate. Clinical practicum and teaching practicum courses are supervised by nursing faculty and qualified preceptors.

Generally, students complete their practicum/residency courses in their geographic area. If adequate resources are not available, concentrated practicum experiences are available in the Fort Worth area.
