Texas LVN Training

In this sluggish economy, many businesses that used to welcome new trainees are now reserving open positions only for those who have many years of schooling or experience. The feeling of losing out on good jobs due to limited education is common. Texas LVN training helps to prepare individuals for exciting jobs in the medical profession and can be completed in a short time.

Texas LVN training is an education option that prepares graduates for a career as a licensed vocational nurse. This career path is open to those who have a desire to work with others on a personal level and can handle the fast-paced environment of a health care setting.

Becoming an LVN in Texas

In Texas, Licensed Vocational Nurses are also referred to as Licensed Vocational Nurses. The first step in becoming an LVN is to graduate from high school or obtain a GED, and then complete a practical/vocational nursing program with at least a 'C' in all nursing courses.

After Completing the Training

In addition to the education requirements, an applicant must pass either the State Board Test Pool Examination (SBTPE) or the NCLEX PN. There is a $200 registration fee.

Along with the licensure application, individuals must submit either a Livescan Fingerprinting or an FBI fingerprint card along with a criminal background check. The former is required of Texas residents and the latter for those who reside outside of Texas.

Individuals from another jurisdiction can become licensed in Texas so long as the licensing requirements are equivalent to those in Texas.

Individuals from a foreign country can become licensed upon completion of a criminal background check, passing of an English Proficiency exam, a Credential Evaluation Service (CES) Full Education course-by-course report, and a Verification of Licensure sent to the Board along with the NCLEX application and $200 fee.

Renewing an LVN License

Texas LVNs must renew licenses every 2 years. 20 hours of continuing education are required for renewal.
