What You’ll Do
TSTC’s Star Power Prep
TSTC’s faculty comes to the college with years of professional experience in their respective occupations.
Having worked in the field themselves, they know just what an employer is seeking and how to stay on track to accomplish that.
The faculty of the RN Nursing Preparatory program serve as advisors for all students interested in a nursing career as well as other health programs.
Registered Nurses (RNs) assess patient health problems and needs, develop and implement nursing care plans, and maintain medical records. They administer nursing care to ill, injured, convalescent, or disabled patients and may advise patients on health maintenance and disease prevention or provide case management.

Advanced practice nursing is practiced by RNs who have specialized formal, post-basic education and who function in highly autonomous and specialized roles.
Small Class Size
At TSTC, our classes average 20 students per class to ensure instructors have plenty of time to work with each student.
Compared to other colleges, TSTC students spend a lot less time in the classroom and much more time in work settings, operating the instruments they will use in their respective fields. Students spend more than 60 percent of their time learning by doing the actual work they will do upon graduating from college. It’s just one of the many ways TSTC ensures you get the strong training you need to succeed in your career choice.
TSTC’s strong programs match industry needs, making it easier for graduates to obtain positions when job search time arrives.
To ensure that these needs are correctly identified, it is imperative that representatives of the industries who employ trained personnel assist in their identification. In order to accomplish this goal, technology Advisory Committees are formed to determine these needs. Committee members serve for two-year terms and meet at least once a year.
How do we do this? As industry professionals, our advisory committees assist the college in determining the courses you study, providing a valuable advantage. They can ensure that what we teach matches what industry is seeking.
The main function of the RN Nursing Preparatory Advisory Committee is to identify the knowledge and skills required for entry-level RNs. The input of the Advisory Committee enables the department to identify training requirements, and is mandated by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
