Welcome to the University of Houston-Victoria, Nursing Program! We offer an innovative RN to BSN online program for registered nurses (RN) who graduated from a diploma or associate degree of nursing program. The curriculum builds on the licensed registered nurse’s knowledge and skills and prepares the nurse to meet the challenges of the dynamic and complex health care environment. This post-licensure program is available to individuals who currently hold a valid unencumbered Texas or designated State RN license. We look forward to helping you meet your educational and career goals!
