TWU College of Nursing 60th Anniversary Celebration!

Celebrating a Milestone

For 60 years, the College of Nursing at Texas Woman's University has been awarding degrees and preparing nurses for service and leadership roles.  In the fall of 1954 the College of Nursing became one of six academic colleges at then Texas State College for Woman (TSCW).  In keeping with the TSCW mission, the nursing college was designed to provide students with the best science education and the finest professional training.  To mark this historic milestone, the TWU College of Nursing will host a series of celebratory activities throughout the academic year 2014-15.

Each of the campus locations in Denton, Dallas and Houston will host an event in which graduates are welcomed.  The new dean of the College, Dr. Anita Hufft, will be introduced.  In addition, the TWU Libraries will showcase the history of the College of Nursing with exhibits and activities.  All alumni are encouraged to take this opportunity to contribute to the vital needs of the college so that many more years of nursing excellence will be ahead for TWU.
