A new agreement between the El Paso Independent School District and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at El Paso could make it easier for students at Silva Health Magnet to earn a spot in the Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing.

The agreement outlines pre-requisites that will help secure admission spots in the Hunt School of
Nursing for Silva Students who earn an associate’s degree through dual-credit courses during high

Students who participate will take up to 60 college credit hours in lower division courses needed to
earn an associate’s degree, which is one of the requirements for admission into the Hunt School of
Nursing’s accelerated nursing program. The courses will be taught by El Paso Community College and students will take the courses along with their traditional high-school classes.
The goal of the program is to create a pathway for EPISD students to gain admission into TTUHSC

in much-needed healthcare fields.
