Texas Nursing Schools

Texas is home to a large number of highly qualified nurses, doctors, surgeons, medical scientists, and other health professionals due to an overwhelming number of resources and facilities in the state. There are nine major medical schools in the state. Because of the number of major medical facilities and a investments in medical research, professionals at the Texas medical Center in Houston perform more heart transplants than any other medical facility in the world.

The Texas Board of Nursing has been the states regulatory agency for more than 100 years, with a mission “to protect and promote the welfare of the people of Texas by ensuring that each person holding a license as a nurse in the State of Texas is competent to practice safely.” The Board of Nursing provides online access to licensing requirements, continuing education resources, online applications, laws, and more. The Texas Nurses Association is an organization that advocates and supports nurses and students in nursing schools around the state. The TNA offers professional and educational resources for members.

About the State of Texas

Texas is the most populous state in the Southern United States and the second most populated state in the country, with more than 25 million residents. Known for oil production that peaked in the 1970’s, the state was home to an oil boom that made the state one of the most prosperous in the country at the time. Oil revenues still account for a large portion of the state’s income and funds have led to major improvements in education and economics for Texans.

As one of the largest states in the country, Texas is home to a multitude of diverse business, professions, and economic structures outside of the oil industry. The diversity in business spans agriculture, aerospace, energy, and biomedicine, to name a few. With several nationally recognized college programs and vast cultures, it is one of the most sought after places to live and work in the south.

Texas has been ruled by six governing bodies over the course of history. The “Six Flags over Texas” have included Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the Confederacy, and, now, the United States.  Because of its unique geographic location, weather conditions and climate vary wildly across the state. On the Gulf Coast of Texas where hurricanes often make landfall, the climate is mild and warm for most of the year, with regular rainfall and an almost sub-tropical climate. But in the northern areas, Texans are accustomed to tornadoes, torrential storms, and snowfall in the winter.
