Degree Requirements (Total 60 Hours)

The Nursing Career Mobility Program Track (LVN to RN and Military to RN) is an accelerated pathway to an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) 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 RN 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.

Note:  An additional 9 hours of credits (RNSG 1533, RNSG 1126, RNSG 2362) will be granted for the Career Mobility student upon admission and completion of the first 6 nursing course credits (RNSG 1424, RNSG 1216, RNSG 1128, RNSG 1263) in the Nursing Career Mobility Program.
