HPU’s School of Nursing to offer information session on January 23

BROWNWOOD – January 18, 2019 – Howard Payne University’s School of Nursing will host an information session for prospective students on Wednesday, January 23, at 9:00 a.m. Dr. Nina Ouimette, dean and professor of nursing, and Dr. Laci Sutton, assistant professor of nursing, will share information about the nursing program, applying for admission and more. The event will be held on the HPU’s School of Nursing building, located at 1004 Main Street, and the public is invited.

HPU’s School of Nursing, which is now accepting applications for the fall 2019 semester, features a student-centered curriculum focusing on caring, faith and intellectual inquiry. The nursing major utilizes 51 main nursing concepts for successful entry into nursing practice.

“We are very excited about HPU’s nursing program,” said Dr. Ouimette, “and we look forward to providing more details about how the program can help students reach their goals for meaningful careers in nursing.”

Dr. Sutton encourages all who are interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree to attend the session.

“Nursing offers many challenging healthcare career opportunities for mission and service to others,” said Dr. Sutton. “If you want to study nursing with caring faculty interested in your success, HPU is the place for you.”

In July 2018, the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) unanimously approved Howard Payne University’s proposal to offer the pre-licensure BSN degree. The approval was the result of diligent preparation and close correspondence with the BON by HPU administrators and faculty.
