Good news for future nurses here in El Paso.
The Texas Tech Board of Regents announced Thursday the approval of a permanent, free-standing school of nursing in El Paso.
The campus is currently a satellite school.
El Paso is considered a medically under-served city because of the low number of healthcare providers including nurses.
The founding Dean says the new school will help provide better health care for the Borderland.
