The Department of Nursing is approved by the Texas Board of Nursing and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to award the Certificate of Completion in Vocational Nursing. The Vocational Nursing Program conducts classes on the main campus in two tracks for students. They may choose either the day or evening track for the length of their matriculation. St. Philip’s College students in the New Braunfels area may also attend daytime classes held in the Teaching Center as a professional courtesy of the Guadalupe Regional Medical Center. The curriculum covers fundamentals of vocational nursing, ethical and legal aspects of nursing practice, nutrition, gerontology, communication skills, body structure and function, administration of medications and solutions, medical and surgical nursing, obstetrical nursing, pediatric nursing, mental health nursing, and professional development. In addition to classroom study, the student will receive supervised laboratory and clinical experiences in local hospitals, long term care facilities and other health care facilities. Students who successfully complete the entire three semester program are awarded a Certificate of Completion and may apply to the Texas Board of Nursing for the National Certification Licensing Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN).
