Welcome the the VN Program Web Page here at UTB/TSC!
The Vocational Nursing Program at UTB/TSC was the first college based program of its kind in the Rio Grande Valley. It has a tradition of excellence and long been recognized for its innovative education. This Vocational Nursing program is also the first and only Vocational Nursing Program within the UT System. This school was the foundation for other programs in the Rio Grande Valley including the McAllen program and the Weslaco campus program at Knapp Medical Center. Both of these programs are now part of South Texas Community College Vocational Nursing Program.
The UTB/TSC Vocational Nursing Program offers two admission opportunities at two different times per year. The Fall class continues through Spring and Summer I & II semesters for a 12 month completion. The January Class continues through Summer I & II and Fall for a 12 month completion.
As the state of Texas and the Rio Grande Valley continues to experience a nursing shortage, the UTB/TSC Vocational Nursing Program attempts to provide much needed relief. Graduates of this program have unlimited opportunities for providing nursing care in Hospitals, Long Term Nursing Care Facilities, Doctors offices, Clinics and Home Health, etc.
The foundation of our program is based on a faculty's commitment to caring both for students, the community and each other. The program philosophy is derived from that commitment. We take pride in the student's level of competence and high pass rate on the NCLEX exam.
