At Texas Health School, the curriculum of our Houston nursing program is specifically designed to help you achieve your educational objectives and become skilled nursing professionals. We integrate two major curriculum concepts to ensure our students receive a comprehensive nursing education:
(1) Differentiated Essential Competencies (DECs, 2010) for Graduates of Texas Nursing Programs and (2) Essential Nursing Processes and Patient Care Standards. These two concepts provide students with the skills necessary to become licensed and provide high quality patient care.
As a graduate of our VN program, you will have the abilities to accomplish the following:
|Day Classes||Evening Classes|
|48 weeks||74 weeks|
To be employed as a licensed vocational nurse (LVN), individuals must pass the National Council Licensure Examination for Vocational Nurses (NCLEX-PN) in their state of residence. All 50 states require the graduate to pass the NCLEX-PN to work as a vocational nurse. Graduates who achieve licensure will be prepared for entry-level employment as a Vocational Nurse, Provider of Patient-Centered Care, Patient Safety Advocate, or Member of a Health Care Team.
Texas Health School has a demonstrated history of providing its graduates with the necessary resources to obtain licensure and excel as nursing professionals. The following are the percentages of our students who successfully pass the NCLEX-PN and obtain licensure as vocational nurses.
