Find My LVN Programs

For those of you serious about launching a professional career in healthcare, LVN programs will let you accomplish your educational goals in a lot less time than you’d probably anticipate. California and Texas use Vocational nursing nomenclature in place of practical nursing, which the other 48 states use. But the jobs are identical in their capacities and are interchangeable in nature.

After as little as 9 to 18 months, you can complete your choice of an online or classroom-based program, and take the NCLEX license examination for your opportunity to be recognized as a Licensed Vocational Nurse.
 

What to Expect When Enrolling in LVN Programs

 
Even though there are not a lot of steps required in instruction to be a Licensed Vocational Nurse, you have to be aware of the several that exist. The very first is to satisfy the legal age requirements and have a high school diploma or equivalent, thirdly is to test negative for any drugs, and lastly is to be cleared by a criminal background check. Below we cover what schools offer LVN programs in CA and TX along with what it takes to finish the program.
