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.
