Midland College offers vocational nursing education courses on the main campus in Midland and in Fort Stockton at the Williams Regional Technical Training Center (WRTTC).

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 successfully completing all courses with a minimum grade of “C” (75), passing 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 chair, and graduation from the program.

Special Admission Requirements: The Vocational Nursing program has limited enrollments based on specific admission criteria. For information regarding the admission criteria, see the program brochure or program representatives. Students interested in the program should contact either the Health Sciences Division Office in Midland (432/685-4600) or the WRTTC in Ft. Stockton (432/336-7882) to obtain additional information and get a certificate plan.
