LPN Program Details
The Vocational Nursing program is a 12 month Certificate program that offers college credit. It is designed to prepare students to perform direct patient care under the supervision of a Registered Nurse and/or physician. Students are prepared for upward mobility in a nursing career. The program is approved by the Texas Board of Nursing and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Upon completion, students will make application to take the State Board Examination (NCLEX-PN) to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse. Many Vocational Nursing students after passing the State Board Exam return to Howard College Big Spring campus to pursue the Accelerated (Transition) Associate Degree Nursing Program to become a Registered Nurse.
