LSC-Tomball’s vocational nursing program is a three semester, one year full-time program that prepares students interested in becoming a licensed vocational nurse (LVN). Students in the program learn to provide nursing care in a variety of health care settings.
“The LVN program is a wonderful way for students interested in healthcare to obtain careers in nursing homes, physician practices, extended care facilities, hospitals, and more,” said Catherine Wampler, director of nursing programs at LSC-Tomball. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment for LVN’s is expected to increase 22% between 2010 and 2020. In 2010, the average median pay for an LVN was $40,380 per year or $19.42 per hour.
