Guaranteed job placement

Our unique partnership with Prime Healthcare enables TSHS to graduate nurses who are ready to practice in today’s healthcare environment. That’s why students who successfully complete the program and pass their licensure exam will be hired by one of Prime RVG’s three Rio Grande Valley hospitals. This ensures that you can begin working and earning immediately in a hospital setting where you already have experience and relationships.

Full tuition reimbursement available for qualified students

At TSHS, we understand that a college degree is expensive. That’s why the TSHS program will forgive tuition for students who successfully complete the program, pass the NCLEX-RN on the first or second attempt within four months of graduation, and work for a Prime RGV hospital for 36 months after graduation. If you do not: (i) complete the program, (ii) pass the NCLEX-RN on the first or second attempt within four months of completing the program, or (iii) remain employed at a Prime RGV hospital for 36 months, you are only responsible for repaying a pro-rated amount of the $15,000 tuition, based on the number of credits enrolled in/completed or the number of months that you worked at a Prime RGV hospital.
