BSN Cultivating More Than Nurses

Esther Nguyen has always known the importance of family and a strong support system. The University of Houston allowed her to remain close to hers while still experiencing the diversity of people and ideas on campus. However, Esther did not anticipate she would discover a second family when she entered UH’s Traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Program.


The Baccalaureate degree program in nursing, the Masters degree program in nursing, and the Doctorate of Nursing Practice program at the University of Houston are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

Our Simulation Centers at UH at Sugar Land and UH at Katy are accredited by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare and are the only accredited simulation centers for any college in the greater Houston area.
