Vocational Nursing

Thank you for your interest in the Vocational Nursing program at Texas State Technical College Harlingen. As a student at TSTC Harlingen, you will be awarded endless opportunities to fulfill your educational goals. TSTC students enjoy a hands-on learning environment that promotes continued educational growth.

TSTC is constantly evolving and providing programs to compete with the specialized fields of the working world. TSTC Harlingen offers Certificates of Completion in Vocational Nursing. Graduates of the program can have career opportunities that offer a sense of responsibility, personal growth, achievement and financial reward.

The nursing profession is part of the extremely high-demand healthcare field. And you'll find that nursing is changing - there's more computer use, the technology is always advancing, and more and more men are entering the field. If this fast-growing career field is appealing - consider the VN Program at TSTC Harlingen to help you achieve your goal of being a licensed vocational nurse.

In the VN program, you'll participate in an innovative learning environment that helps you develop your care giving skills in classroom and labs, in interactive online sessions, and in virtual and on-site healthcare clinicals. Then, on to clinical sites at hospitals, nursing homes and doctors' offices where you will experience the reality and pace of the nursing profession.

Career opportunities within the program vary between options and I encourage you to visit the program and find out which choice is right for you. TSTC can provide you with the knowledge to achieve your goals.
