LVN/MILITARY to ADN MOBILITY PROGRAM
The LVN/Military to ADN Mobility Program is for students interested in upward mobility. The three (3) semester course of study is designed to prepare the graduate to function safely and effectively as a provider of care, a coordinator of care, and a member of the nursing profession. The curriculum includes a transition course as a bridge to the second year of an Associate of Applied Science in nursing, didactic and clinical nursing courses, and general education courses in selected humanities, biological, social, and physical sciences. The curriculum reflects the significant and ongoing changes in the health care delivery system. The curriculum provides a progressively more complex learn experience to assist the student in developing problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
Admission to the LVN/Military to ADN Mobility Program occurs twice each academic year. To coordinate admissions with the Texas Board of Nursing, application deadlines for spring admission are set to accommodate the Boards review. There are no exceptions to the deadlines. Please visit the website for detailed program and admission requirements.
The curriculum format taught is concept-based. Concept-based learning is an educational method that focuses on the big ideas and teaches students how to organize and categorize information. Content focuses on facts, while concept focuses on making sense of those facts and the world around us. Instead of the traditional method of learning, which concentrates on the ability to recall facts in isolation, concept-based learning focuses on understanding broader principles (concepts) that can be applied to a variety of specific examples.
To fulfill the clinical requirements, students must attend clinical rotations in San Antonio and its surrounding areas if needed. Transportation to and from hospitals and other assigned medical facilities is the responsibility of the student. Students should be prepared to travel to any facility deemed appropriate to meet course objectives.
