Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Nursing program has a new center for nursing research and collaboration.

The center’s goal is to support the professional development of the school of nursing’s research facility and students.

Research services at the center will include everything from pediatrics to geriatrics, and school officials say this research will help impact the well-being of West Texas and beyond.

Texas Tech officials say the School of Nursing joins every other school in having a center for research.
