Midland College offers Vocational Nursing Programs on the Midland Campus and through the Williams Regional Technical Training Center (WRTTC) in Ft. Stockton.

The Vocational Nursing Program is a one-year (12 month) program leading to a certificate. Satisfactory completion of the program qualifies the individual to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nursing (NCLEX-PN) which in turn, allows the individual to become licensed to practice as a vocational nurse. The curriculum prepares the graduate to work in an acute or long term care facility, nursing agency or physician’s office.

Requirements for graduation include completing all courses with a minimum grade of “C”, taking the end of program achievement test and satisfying all college financial requirements. Requirements to write the licensure examination include written application, payment of fees, certification by program director and graduation from the program.

Special Admission Requirements: The Vocational Nursing programs have limited enrollments based on specific admission criteria. For information regarding the admission criteria, see the program brochure or program representatives. Students interested in one of these programs should contact either the Division Office in Midland or the WRTTC in Ft. Stockton to obtain additional information and/or acquire a certificate plan.

The following is the suggested sequence of courses for this degree. A + indicates a course with either a prerequisite or a co-requisite. However, courses that do not have a prerequisite do not have to be taken in order. Nevertheless, the general sequence should still be followed. Vocational Nursing (VNSG) courses must be taken according to the suggested sequence. Part-time students may require more than four semesters to complete their certificates.
