Vocational Nursing degree plan and application requirements

Lori Moseley, MSN, RN

Thank you for your interest in the Hill College Vocational Nursing Program. The program is a one-year, 47 credit hour curriculum leading to a Certificate of Completion. The Vocational Nursing Program is accredited by the Board of Nursing (BON) for the State of Texas and is designed to provide the student with the skill and knowledge required to pass the NCLEX-PN (National Council Licensure Examination - Vocational Nursing).

Hill College maintains an open admission policy; however, the number of nursing students that can be accepted is limited by the Texas Board of Nursing for the State of Texas and the availability of clinical instruction facilities. Hill College will take the top candidates who receive the highest total points. In the event of a tie, the candidate with the highest points in the required areas will be given first priority (Reading and Math scores, Preparation essay and Reference form). Hill College reserves the right to refuse admission to the nursing program to any applicant whose application is deemed unsatisfactory.

Vocational Nursing students must have the Hepatitis B immunization series completed prior to first patient contact.
