Our doors opened in 1969

On May 29, 1969, the Texas Legislature passed a bill to establish The University of Texas System School of Nursing at San Antonio in response to a nursing shortage.  The San Antonio school along with schools in Austin, Galveston, Arlington, Houston, and El Paso comprised the University of Texas System School of Nursing under the leadership of President Marilyn Willman Ph.D. Dr. Margretta Styles became the first Dean of the School of Nursing at San Antonio and was elected President of the American Nurses Association. Pioneering the School of Nursing alongside Dr. Styles, were four faculty members, Debra Hymovich, Nancy Maebius, Suellen Reed, and Ruth Stewart.
