CANYON -- The head of the Texas Board of Nursing is now a member of WTAMUs nursing faculty.
Kathy Shipp joined the WTAMU Family Nurse Practitioner Program faculty this fall as an instructor overseeing clinical practice in the Lubbock area.
"The WT nursing program has a long history of quality," Shipp said. "The graduate program at WT has always done well and the F.N.P. is respected."
In October 2011, the Texas Board of Nursing voted unanimously to change the status of WTAMUs baccalaureate degree nursing program from conditional to full approval after the schools baccalaureate nursing graduates achieved a 95.18 percent first-time pass rate on the NCLEX. And in the years since, WTAMUs nursing baccalaureate graduates have maintained a 95 percent or higher first-time pass rate.
