The Department of Lifelong Learning programs are based on the belief that learning is a
lifelong, self-directed process encompassing the cognitive, psychomotor and affective
domains. The department serves as a catalyst for providing exciting, accessible,
professional, state of the art, quality continuing education programs for enhancing
the professional growth and development of local, regional, national and international
To support the educational needs, the department staff promotes education collaboration
and operations with other local, regional and national organizations. We host regional,
national, and international nursing conferences whenever possible.
The UT Health Science Center is an approved provider of continuing nursing education
by the Texas Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing
Center's Commission on Accreditation. The activities meet Type I criteria for mandatory
continuing education requirements toward re-licensure as established by the Board
of Nurse Examiners for the State of Texas.
We will update and maintain the DLL web site, so that program information will be
readily available to you. If you have any questions, would like additional information
about these changes or have recommendations, please feel free to contact us.
We look forward to continued excellence in providing opportunities for lifelong
learning for nurses and for identifying and adapting new and innovative ways of delivering lifelong learning.
