EL PASO - Work is expected to begin next spring on a new home for Texas Tech’s Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing in El Paso. The facility, funded in part by an $11 million grant from the Medical Center of the Americas Foundation, should be finished by August 2014.

The program is currently running out of a leased building downtown, and school officials said it has outgrown that building. At this time, 66 students have enrolled.

The nursing school will admit up to 160 students a year in two programs, a four-year bachelor’s in nursing and a second bachelor’s in nursing. The 25,000-sf building will contain classrooms, labs, faculty offices, support space, training equipment and public art.

The nursing school will be located north of the Medical Education Building at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso and the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine.
