Vocational Nursing

Offered at the Levelland Campus, the SPC Reese Center, and the Plainview Extension Center.

The Vocational Nursing program is designed to prepare individuals interested in the nursing profession to practice as licensed vocational nurses.  Clinical experience is provided through affiliations with several area health care facilities.

Satisfactory completion of the 12-month curriculum with a minimum grade of "C" in all course work entitles the student to receive a Certificate of Proficiency.  The student is then eligible to apply to write the State Board licensure examination.

The Vocational Nursing program reserves the right to change the curriculum and program policies as deemed necessary for the maintenance of a high quality education.  Policies regarding admissions, advanced placement, dismissal, probation, class and clinical attendance, insurance, grading and readmission are available in the Vocational Nursing Student Handbook.

This program is approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Texas Board of Nursing.
