Edinburg, Texas – The UTRGV School of Nursing on May 23 welcomed eight students from the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District who are prospective UTRGV nursing students. 

The students were enrolled in the Project HEAL2 (Health Education and Leadership for All), a program operated by the Region One Education Service Center that provides high school students interested in a nursing career with educational opportunities and experiences to kick start their career.

Students who successfully complete Project HEAL2 can graduate with an associate degree in nursing from South Texas College, in addition to their high school diploma. 


UTRGV joined the endeavor in March 2018 to offer students who completed the program a pathway to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. 

The PSJA students have been accepted into the nursing program, contingent upon their completion of a few additional classes before they begin the BSN program, and maintenance of a grade point average higher than 3.5.
