Ready to get started? Texarkana College is now accepting applications for the Licensed Vocational Nursing Class of Fall 2017.

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.
