What's special about the program?
The LVN/Military to A.D.N. Mobility Program is an accelerated pathway to an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in Nursing. Nursing courses are taught over three consecutive semesters. Those eligible for entry include the Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN). The co-requisite clinical courses are held face to face in San Antonio Texas. Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) meet the LVN to A.D.N entry requirements by virtue of their graduation from an accredited Vocational Nursing program and licensure as an LVN. This program has been successful in meeting the evolving challenges presented to RN’s in the modern healthcare system.
The St. Philip’s College LVN/Military to ADN Mobility Program is approved by the Texas Board of Nursing and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to award the Associate degree in Nursing* (*Board action by the Texas Board of Nursing, per Rule 215 changed the program approval status to Conditional Approval, based on the 2019 NCLEX-RN pass rate).
Upon completion of this program, students are eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nursing (NCLEX-RN) through the Texas Board of Nursing. Passing this exam certifies the graduate to practice as a Registered Nurse.
Admission to the LVN/Military to ADN Mobility Program is held once each academic year, with admitted students to begin studies in the Spring semester.
