Muleshoe Campus Vocational Nursing Program
The Vocational Nursing Program is a time-consuming and academically-challenging one-year program that prepares the graduate to meet all requirements of the Texas Board of Nurses for licensing as a Licensed Vocational Nurse. Vocational Nursing is the entry level into the profession of nursing. The licensed vocational nurse practices under the supervision of a registered nurse, advanced practice nurse, and physician. The LVN practices in structured health care settings with multiple patients with predictable healthcare needs.
The Vocational Nursing Program at Muleshoe is offered each August from the Reese Campus via interactive television (ITV). This means that students in the Muleshoe area attend class at the Muleshoe Center and receive lecture from Reese via television. An instructor is on campus to work with students in the skills lab. A course facilitator assists the instructor in the administration of tests and other course materials.
Students in Muleshoe are able to practice at the local hospital provided the census is such that will accommodate students. Students should be prepared to drive to Lubbock for clinical experiences if the hospital census will not allow students to do their clinical rotations there. Students may have to drive to Lubbock for other experiences. Students must drive to Lubbock for the obstetric and pediatric rotations.
Students may test for the Vocational Nursing Program in Muleshoe by contacting Connie Kenmore at the Muleshoe Center.
