A Licensed Vocational Nurse cares for ill, injured, or convalescing patients or persons with disabilities in hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, private homes, group homes, and similar institutions. An LVN may work under the supervision of a registered nurse. Licensing is required.


The Vocational Nursing Program is eleven months, beginning the Spring semester every year and ending the 2nd week of November.  

The LVN application period is now closed. Please read the Information Packet linked below or call the Health Professions office for more information.

 If you have questions about the program or its prerequisites, please contact Shari Jones in the Health Professions office, contact information to the right on this page.

Applicants also must download and read the 2018 Application Packet.

Selection for the VN program is made by a committee of Brazosport College faculty and staff; based on the completed application, transcripts, references, work history, placement test results(TEAS) of qualified applicants, and successful completion of prerequisites.

The LVN program prerequisite is a choice of:

  • VNSG1320, A&P for Allied Health, taught in the summer OR
  • Anatomy & Physiology I & II (check online schedule for times)

The TEAS exam is used as a placement exam for the LVN program. All applicants must take this exam. A schedule of the dates and times this test will be administered will be posted during the application period.
