TTUHSC El Paso Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing Dean of Nursing Message


Congratulations on your admission to the Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing. Welcome! The GGHSON prides itself in providing excellence in nursing education to prepare our students to meet the challenges of today’s complex healthcare environments.

This handbook is for all students and provides a road map for success as you begin your nursing career. As you go through the process of orientation and general assimilation to being in nursing school, you will encounter expectations about how you should conduct yourself in the academic and clinical setting. Note, many of these policies are based on rules in place to protect the public that are guided by the American Nurses Association (ANA) standards of practice, ANA Code of Ethics as well as the Texas Board of Nursing’s Practice Act and Regulations.

As a nursing student, it is imperative that you consider the rigor of the program, strive for deep learning and use available resources for success. This handbook begins with a general overview of the program. It is followed with information about the policies that highlight the importance of professionalism in the RN role. Lastly, it provides you with information about academic expectations and supportive resources to help you progress and manage challenges that may emerge.

The Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing administration, faculty, and staff are committed to helping you succeed in the program. Please make sure you read this manual to get the answers to everyday questions you may have about starting and successfully progressing through the program. If you have more questions that are not answered herein, we will be happy to address your needs on an individual basis. I wish you much success!

Cordially,

GGHSON Dean of Nursing
