A Future Built on Your Word.

Our institution was created by the caring voices of those who worked to advance the quality and scope of medical care. Since its foundation by the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word to minister to the sick and poor, Ila Faye Miller School of Nursing & Health Professions students, faculty, alumni, donors, and partners have come together with a mission — to make South Texas and the world a healthier place.

Please help us as we create future healthcare leaders. Your time, mentoring, and resources help us to build stronger graduates and ensure the long-term success of the programs.

I’m so lucky to have a career with so many possibilities.”
