Deadline approaching for Spring 2014 TSTC Associate degree nursing program
Texas State Technical College West Texas is accepting applications for the Spring 2014 Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program until Thursday.The Associate Degree Nursing Program is an affordable, online, fast-paced curriculum. TSTC West Texas works hand-in-hand with healthcare industry leaders to train highly qualified nurses. There is a significant and growing need for registered nurses in the West Texas region and throughout the State of Texas. In 2008, TSTC West Texas, in collaboration with Ranger College (RC) and Western Texas College (WTC), established a LVN to ADN program for licensed vocational nurses seeking an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing (AASN) Degree. The accelerated, hybrid program may be completed in 12 months. Upon successful completion of the program, the AASN degree will be conferred by TSTC. The graduate nurse can then take the National Council Licensure Exam for Registered Nurses (NLCEX-RN). Upon passing the NCLEX-RN, the graduate will be issued a state license to practice as a Registered Nurse. The LVN to ADN Program is approved by Texas Board of Nursing. The program is further approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. To apply or for more information, visit http://www.tstc.edu/westtexasadn/adn_welcome.
