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. Applications are posted on this site in May and are due in August.
The prerequisite courses that must be completed before applying to the LVN program are HITT 1305, Medical Terminology, Anatomy & Physiology I & II. Please see a counselor for more information.
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 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.
VN applicants must meet with Financial Aid representatives about financial aid.
Classes are typically 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m Monday through Thursdays, utilizing some Fridays and evening shifts.
Classes are held at Brazosport College. Clinical assignments are mostly at local facilities, periodically using other facilities around the greater Houston area.
