TAMIU Dr. F. M. Canseco School of Nursing
Hosts Reception Honoring Partners Tuesday

Texas A&M International University’s College of Nursing and Health Sciences, Dr. F. M. Canseco School of Nursing will honor the partners who have made their graduates’ growing legacy possible with a special reception Tuesday, Nov. 18, 2014 from 7 - 8:30 p.m. in Dr. F. M. Canseco Hall, room 118.

“As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, we wanted to pause and celebrate our donors, partners and collaborators who make our legacy of caring possible,” said TAMIU’s dean of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, Dr. Glenda Walker.

“Our nursing graduates’ legacy is caring.  Much of that legacy is delivered daily here in Laredo and Webb County.  Our donors, partners and collaborators, through gifts of both time and treasure, make our program and our nursing students’ futures possible.  Because of them, we can carry on our legacy of caring,” Dr. Walker explained.

Dr. Walker said she plans for this reception to be an annual event, affording donors, partners and collaborators a chance to meet with students and Dr. F. M. Canseco School of Nursing graduates to see the measure of their partnership.

“We all stand on very broad shoulders and are very grateful for all the support and partnerships that help to drive our students’ success," Dr. Walker observed.

The Canseco School of Nursing offers a basic BSN curriculum for students who are not registered nurses, an online RN to BSN completion degree, and a Master’s of Science in Nursing (MSN) which offers a focus as an advanced practice family nurse practitioner specialist as well as a focus on nursing administration.  All programs are fully accredited by the Texas Board of Nursing and the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.  

The School graduated its first students in 1996 and to date has graduated over 770 nurses with undergraduate or graduate degrees. Many remain in the Laredo and Webb County region.
