CAREERS & ALUMNI

A degree with many career possibilities

Our nationally-recognized nursing program prepares you for a successful career in the nursing specialty and facility of your choice. SFA nurses are currently helping patients at hospitals and practices throughout the state of Texas and the United States. You can even find our graduates overseas working as civilian and military nurses. 

SFA nurses are highly regarded in the field, a fact we credit to both our dedicated teaching staff and our top-notch students. Each year, more than 90 percent of SFA nursing graduates pass the licensing examination on their initial attempt, and some semesters, 100 percent have been successful on their first try. The majority of our graduates have a job waiting for them upon graduation.  

Why study nursing?

At SFA, we don’t just teach you about nursing. We show you how to provide exceptional nursing care in an environment that is innovative, challenging and supportive. Your professors are licensed nurses who provide one-on-one interaction to help you hone your nursing skills and determine your areas of interest.

What kind of jobs can I get with a nursing degree from SFA?

The opportunities in nursing are practically endless, and they all are challenging, interesting and involve making a difference in people’s lives on a daily basis.  You can create a career that matches your personal preferences and your life goals.  Additionally, you can adapt your work focus to fit your needs and circumstances throughout your career. With a degree from SFA, you will be well-prepared for any career option you choose.

With our nursing program, the jobs come to you!

We think our nursing students are pretty amazing, and so do employers. Hospitals often send information on employment opportunities and even visit campus to recruit. As part of our leadership management course, hospital representatives come to class to present on topics of interest and meet with students.
