LAREDO - Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) now offers an online bachelors of science in nursing, a program designed to take 18 months to complete as well as meet rising industry demands by producing more qualified nurses.

Texas A&M International University’s degree plan enables registered nurses who hold either an associate’s degree in nursing or a nursing diploma to earn bachelor’s degrees.

Both the Texas Nurses Association and the American Nurses Association are calling for associate’s degree-holding nurses and diploma-holding nurses to earn a bachelor’s of science in nursing, according to a TAMIU press release.

As activity in the Eagle Ford Shale ticks up, TAMIU officials expect the need for qualified nurses in towns such as Cotulla to rise.
