Veterans at Cizik School of Nursing

Cizik School of Nursing at UTHealth Houston honors and welcomes U.S. Armed Services veterans transitioning to civilian careers as nurses and active military personnel seeking to enhance their skills.


BSN for Veterans

A dedicated case manager works with veterans and active military members nearing their end of duty to help them prepare to apply for our Veterans BSN program. Those who have served in any military branch may apply regardless of previous health care training or experience.

Serving and Learning

Major Lisa Kasper took advantage of the U.S. Army’s FNP and ENP School of Choice program to earn her Doctor of Nursing Practice on the Family Nurse Practitioner track while concurrently completing our Emergency/Trauma Care program at Cizik School of Nursing.



Financial Aid for Veterans

By completing the general scholarship application on Cizik School of Nursing’s website, veterans will automatically be considered for relevant scholarships. Just ask our three 2023 recipients of full-ride scholarships from the Houston Livestock Show and RodeoTM. Also, get the details on accessing your veterans educational benefits.
