Welcome to Texas Health School, where we believe nursing is more than just a profession – it’s a calling. If you’re a vocational nurse who’s ready to take the next step in your career, we’re here to help you become a Registered Nurse.
Our LVN-to-ADN program is designed exclusively for currently licensed LVNs, like you. It’s a transitional pre-licensure program that spans 64 weeks, divided into eight, 8-week sessions. We know your time is valuable, so we’ve made sure that this program is efficient and effective.
When you successfully complete our program, you’ll earn an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing degree. Even better, you’ll be eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN®) for licensure as a Registered Nurse in the State of Texas.
At Texas Health School, we’re committed to helping you achieve your career goals. Let us help you answer your calling and take the next step in your nursing career.
Our Associate of Applied Science in Nursing Program is an accelerated course of study that builds upon the previous education and experience of established VNs. Our curriculum includes a combination of hybrid and face-to-face classes, simulation labs, skill performance, and clinical experience that will prepare you for work in a range of healthcare settings.
Students in our LVN-to-ADN program will take courses in the following subjects:

We understand that juggling work, family, and education can be a challenge. That’s why we’re proud to introduce our new hybrid learning format, which gives you the opportunity to complete your general education courses online. However, nursing-specific courses will still be held in classroom environments, clinics, or labs. This ensures that you receive the necessary hands-on training to lead you to success in your future career as an RN.
