How to Apply: Nursing

Vocational Nursing

Licensed Vocational Nurses contribute to the plan of care by collaborating with the interdisciplinary team members and the patient’s family, representing the beginning level of the nursing practice continuum. LVNs work in hospitals, long-term care facilities, physicians’ offices, schools and home health agencies.

TJC Nursing offers one pathway in the Vocational Nursing track with four different cohorts: Tyler AM, Tyler PM, Lindale AM, and Rusk AM.
