The division's areas of focus include Clinical Education, Continuing Nursing Education and Outreach, Nursing Academic Education, Professional Development and Nursing Research.
Clinical Staff Development and Nursing Research
- Nursing Internship Programs are designed to assist recent graduates in transitioning to the role of a professional registered nurse in a specialized area.
Continuing Nursing Education and Outreach
Continuing Nursing Education classes provide attendees with opportunities to learn skills that either prepare them for new roles or help them to be more successful within their present roles. Outreach Education is available upon request. Please e-mail Melinda LaPrade for more information.
Nursing Academic Education
Scott & White partners with Texas A&M Health Science Center (TAMHSC)-Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi (TAMU-CC) to offer a unique approach to nursing education. Additionally, the Scott & White Nursing Education Assistance Program provides scholarships each year for nursing education.
The Division of Clinical Staff Development and Nursing Research supports the belief of the Department of Nursing that the practice of professional nursing must be research based.
