Welcome to McLennan Community College's Vocational Nursing Program. The faculty wants each student to have a positive learning experience and to be successful. We believe in safe practice, honesty and integrity. Workforce skills such as punctuality will be stressed. Competence in nursing is developed through diligence and participation in the classroom, learning lab and all clinical rotations. Students are considered active partners in the learning process.

Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) provide direct bedside patient care that includes activities such as taking vital signs, applying dressings, and administering prescribed medications. They observe and report on patients' symptoms, reactions to treatment and medication, and progress. LVNs may also supervise nursing assistants or aides. The work is active and physical but rewarding and full of opportunities.

MCC's Vocational Nursing Program is accredited by the Texas Board of Nursing. After completing this one-year program, students receive a Certificate of Completion and are eligible to apply for vocational nurse licensure.


McLennan Community College's Vocational Nursing Program is committed to preparing graduates that can safely and effectively fill a beginning technical level role as a member of the nursing team. Program graduates develop the beginning skills, knowledge, understanding and attitudes essential for giving safe, competent and effective care.

The Vocational Nursing Program is approved by the Texas Board of Nursing. (333 Guadalupe, Tower 3, Austin, Texas 78701; phone 512-305-6818)
