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.
