VN to RN Mobility Information

V.N. Mobility to Professional Nursing
The VN Mobility to Associate Degree Nursing Program is a 12 month program leading to an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing. This curriculum meets the Texas Board of Nurse Examiners requirements for licensure as a Registered Nurse. At the completion of the degree requirements the student may apply for a license and take the National Council Licensure Examination.

Admission into the VN Mobility to Associate Degree Program is competitive and students should apply for the program 6 months prior to the semester they need to start specific nursing courses. Items considered when determining the most qualified applicants for admission each year include the following:
  • Current Texas licensure as a L.V.N.
  • HESI A2 scores
  • Completion of pre requisite courses; General Chemistry course with lab, Nutrition, English Composition, and Introduction to Psychology, Human Growth and Development, Anatomy and Physiology I and II, Speech, and computer proficiency
  • Completion of co-requisite courses; computer elective, Microbiology, Statistics, and Philosophy
  • Grade Point Average
  • Completion of additional courses that could apply towards a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing
  • In District status
  • Experience in Health care
In addition, students who are entering this profession need to be aware they will have to undergo a criminal history check and random drug screens. Based on the results of these checks, student may not be able to complete the clinical component of the degree requirements. Upon completion of the program, graduates must take and pass a national exam for licensure as a professional nurse, and will undergo a FBI criminal history check through the Board of Nurse Examiners and licensure may be denied if any criminal activity or history of certain psychiatric illness is present. Students who need to clarify this issue may apply for a declaratory order with the Board of Nurse Examiners (bne.state.tx.us)

Salaries for a newly graduated Registered Nurse vary based on work hours and setting, but average $21.00 per hour in this area.
