A Message from Our Dean

Pamela G. Watson
Dean, School of Nursing

Welcome to the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) School of Nursing website. We have endeavored to design a friendly site that can be navigated with ease by all of our users. There is a broad spectrum of visitors to this site. Meeting the needs of all users is a challenge the School welcomes.

Potential student applicants will find information about pathways to the bachelor’s degree (Traditional BSN, RN-BSN), master’s degree opportunities (Nurse Practitioner specialties, Leadership and Nurse Educator options) and doctoral degree programs (BSN to PhD, on-line PhD, DNP).

The UTMB School of Nursing exists to contribute to the greater good by preparing the best in professional nurses. As Dean of the UTMB SON, I am committed to lead this first nursing school in Texas to excel in education, practice and research.

I feel very fortunate to be leading the School with its extraordinarily talented faculty, staff, and students. Perhaps you will consider joining us at UTMB on beautiful Galveston Island.
