Alumni and faculty research improves infant health care

At 9 p.m. on a Friday, many young professionals are unwinding, preparing to enjoy the beginning of a weekend away from the office. Not Kelly McGlothen. This is when the 26-year-old nurse comes to life as she heads expeditiously toward the Biobehavioral Research Laboratory in the School of Nursing at the UT Health Science Center.


Student Success Center gains momentum

Pattern of Progress

Every student dreams of graduation. They anticipate wearing a cap and gown, imagine the pomp and circumstance and envision the pride in their family’s eyes. But the road to completing their education is never easy, especially for students who embark on the rigors associated with achieving a nursing degree.

The Natural

As a young girl in South Texas, Juanita Ruth Kirkpatrick Smith would eagerly await her mother’s return home from her shift as a special duty nurse. She loved listening to her mother recount her workday with stories of how she helped patients by assisting other nurses and doctors.

Generations of extraordinary alumni impact lives

Stephani Walsh, J.D., Class of 1977

For one of Bexar County’s civil court judges, a nursing education from the School of Nursing at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio laid the groundwork and foundation upon which she built her career.


Making a world of difference

Nursing students travel the globe to help patients in need

Every year since 2006, faculty, students and graduates from the School of Nursing leave their families, work and school to travel to remote villages in Guatemala to provide medical and surgical nursing care to the indigenous Guatemalan Mayans. All of these volunteers pay their own way.
