The primary role of the licensed vocational nurse is to provide nursing care in structured health care settings, under the direction of a registered nurse or licensed physician, for clients experiencing common, well-defined problems with predictable outcomes. The graduate is eligible to take the NCLEX-PN licensure examination. The program is designed to be completed within one calendar year. The curriculum is based on sequential learning; therefore, a student must have a grade of “C” or better in all courses to progress to the next sequence of VNSG courses. The Vocational Nursing Program is approved by the Texas Board of Nursing.
