Professional Nursing

VC’s Associate Degree-Nursing Program offers a two-year Associate of Applied Science degree in nursing.

VC’s ADN Program is fully approved by the Texas Board of Nursing and accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, Georgia 30326; (404) 975-5000; nlnac@nlnac.org.

Successful completion of the ADN Program will enable graduates to apply to write the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Satisfactory achievement on the examination will qualify graduates for licensure as a registered nurse.

As a registered nurse, you will assess patients, administer medications, perform therapeutic procedures, and instruct patients and their families in proper health care practices. You will work in collaboration with physicians and other members of the healthcare team and supervise licensed vocational nurses, nursing assistants, and home health aides.

You may work in a hospital, clinic, physician’s office, home health care, schools, or any of a number of other health care settings. There are also many specialty practice areas you may choose from in professional nursing.

VC’s Associate of Applied Science degree in nursing may be combined with the core curriculum to transfer to a four-year university. Many universities offer bachelor’s, master’s, and even doctoral degrees in nursing. There are also many other specialization options available to continue your education in nursing.
