Program Details

Designed around classroom, laboratory and clinical experiences, the Integrated Curriculum is organized around a series of patient care concepts moving from simple to complex.

Statement of Licensure Eligibility

Upon completion of the Associate Degree or Vocational Nursing Program requirements, graduates may apply to take the licensure exam to become a registered nurse (RN) or vocational nurse (LVN). Completion of the nursing program, however, does not guarantee eligibility for the licensure exam. Eligibility for the National Council Licensure Exam for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) or National Council Licensure Exam for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN) is determined solely by the Texas BON.  Employment in this field requires Texas licensure from the Texas Board of Nursing.

Please note: This is a competitive admission program.

Program Admission Criteria

This is an application based program. Students interested in applying to the nursing program should read the latest Nursing program requirements.
