The late Dr. F. M. Canseco is the School's namesake.  

Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) College of Nursing and Health Sciences’ Dr. F. M. Canseco School of Nursing candidates for Spring 2017 graduation held their traditional pinning ceremony Thursday at TAMIU’S Center for the Fine and Performing Arts’ Recital Hall.

In addition to the pinning, the 78 candidates participated in the Florence Nightingale Candle Lighting and recitation of the “Nurses Pledge.”

A highlight of the event was a special presentation by Dean Dr. Glenda Walker to family of the late Dr. F. M. Canseco and Consuelo Canseco, in a moving 20th anniversary observation of the impact of the Canseco family’s gift which made the College and Canseco School of Nursing possible.
