Six babies born to Cizik School of Nursing faculty, staff, and students.

Nurses of tomorrow

It's a baby boom!

A delightful baby boom seems to be underway at Cizik School of Nursing.  We would not presume to chart career paths for children so early in life, but don’t they all look cute in their UTHealth Houston onesies?

“Family truly comes first at Cizik School of Nursing. UTHealth Houston’s robust benefits package includes a number of programs designed specifically for growing families, and at the nursing school, we strive to provide a supportive environment for all of our new parents,” said Diane Santa Maria, dean of Cizik School of Nursing and mother of three.
