The 61,000-square-foot building will include four nursing classrooms, student study areas, a clinical simulation center, and space for a veterinary clinic and research laboratory. The Texas A&M School of Nursing will initially focus on offering a traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and expects to enroll approximately 50 students per semester to help address the critical nursing shortage in the region and the state.

The facility will also serve as a home base for faculty and students of the Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences to conduct important research and outreach. The building is expected to be open for the spring 2026 semester, marking a significant step in expanding academic offerings and meeting the demands of the Rio Grande Valley community.
