The Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing (GGHSON) was established to counteract a long-term
shortage of nurses to provide care to this medically underserved area. We are committed
to preparing nursing students to meet the challenges of today’s complex health care
environment, enriched by an environment of interdisciplinary teamwork. The exchanges
between students in the GGHSON and the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine provide insight
into the world both disciplines will have to navigate as a team.
In October 2010, the Hunt Family Foundation donated $10 million to the Texas Tech University System to develop the autonomous, fully accredited Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso GGHSON. Gayle Greve Hunt is the wife of Woody L. Hunt, chairman of the Hunt Family Foundation and CEO of the Hunt Companies, which is headquartered in El Paso.
In May 2013, the GGHSON received full accreditation for its baccalaureate degree program from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org). The school admitted students in September 2011 under initial approval from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Texas Board of Nursing before achieving voluntary professional accreditation through CCNE.
With the increasing shortage of baccalaureate-prepared nurses in Texas and across the country, the GGHSON is committed to preparing nursing students to meet the challenges of today's complex health care environment.
