NURSING

VOCATIONAL NURSING CERTIFICATE – PALESTINE CAMPUS

 

 The program at the TVCC Palestine campus begins in the fall of each year.

The deadline for completing all pre-admission testing requirements and for submitting the online application is December 1.

Applicants will have until January 31 to submit fall semester transcripts. Students who become interested for this program after the deadline should check the website in April to see if late applications will be accepted in May.

NOTE: Criminal history MAY disqualify individuals from obtaining or maintaining nursing certifications.

All nursing VN applicants will be given instructions for obtaining fingerprints for an FBI criminal background check for the Texas Board of Nursing. These must be completed at least 90 days prior to the start of nursing classes.

The student must have a “blue” card, a positive outcome letter or an eligibility letter (declaratory order) BEFORE starting classes. Students who need to complete this requirement will be sent an email in January with instructions.

Any nursing applicant who has been arrested, convicted of a crime other than a minor traffic violation, diagnosed with, treated, or hospitalized in the past five years for schizophrenia or other psychotic disorders, bipolar disorder, paranoid personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder, or borderline personality disorder, or addicted to or treated for the use of alcohol or any other drug within the past five years, must petition the Texas Board of Nursing for a declaratory order concerning their eligibility to take the licensing examination, the NCLEX-PN.

The Texas Board of Nursing can be reached at 512-305-7400. The application for a declaratory order can be downloaded from the BON website at www.bon.texas.gov/forms_declaratory_order.asp. This declaratory order must be completed and the eligibility letter received before the student starts nursing courses. If the case must be sent to the enforcement division, the processing may take 6-24 months, so applicants must apply early. If a student is not able to start nursing courses due to waiting for a declaratory order, a space will be reserved for the following year pending a positive outcome from the Texas Board of Nursing.
