You’ve always kept a cool head in a crisis. Needles never bothered you. And when you scraped your knee as a kid, you didn’t close your eyes when mom poured on stuff that bubbled and stung. We can turn your talent into a healing career and a healthy paycheck. In fact, 90% of our certified LVNs find job placement when they leave Texarkana College.

Ready to get started? Texarkana College is now accepting applications for the Associate Degree Nursing and Licensed Vocational Nursing Classes of Spring 2021.

Licensed Vocational Nursing

Established in 1956, this program prepares students for entry-level employment in health care. Students learn to provide direct nursing care to acutely and chronically ill patients within the health care settings. The role of the VN is to function under the leadership of registered nurses and physicians. Upon completion of the program, graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN) to become Licensed Vocational Nurses.

Associate Degree Nursing

The ADN program at Texarkana College began in 1959 and graduated its first class of nurses in 1962. Since then, TC has trained thousands of nurses and healthcare professionals in our region. This program typically takes 3 years to complete—one year for general education requirements and two years for nursing courses. On completion, graduates are eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) to become licensed as Registered Nurses.
