RELLIS Health Science Degree

rellis Campus main buildingThe College of Nursing and Health Sciences, in cooperation with Blinn College and Texas A&M University’s RELLIS Campus, is excited to provide the students an opportunity to grow intellectually and professionally by earning a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences from West Texas A&M University.
Annually, a significant number of students earn an associate’s degree from Blinn College in allied health. Having a Bachelor’s degree can allow these healthcare providers to pursue better opportunities in health careers by increasing their salary and responsibility within the field. In addition, a baccalaureate degree in Health Sciences from West Texas A&M University will prepare students for graduate level education in most health professions programs, as well as graduate study in related areas such as healthcare administration. 
Various demographic realities in Texas, such as the doubling of residents 65 years of age and older by the year 2040, clearly indicate that the demand for health sciences services have grown and will continue to expand. Health services as a whole are among the top industries in numbers of persons employed.
