SAN MARCOS - St. David’s Foundation donated $2 million to help Texas State create a Master of Science in the nursing field. The gift will provide funding for hiring faculty, recruiting students and developing the curriculum for the next five years.
The master’s program will be a five-semester plan lasting 21 months for registered nurses with bachelor’s degrees. The plan is to enroll 40 students this fall in the master’s program and graduate 38 nurse practitioners with a master’s degree per year.
The program will have a focus on integrative nursing that includes acupuncture, herbs and other non-traditional medicine. There are only three comparable master’s programs in the country that include these skills because most of what they will learn is included in doctorate plans.
There are also plans for a doctorate program for the fall 2015 semester.
