VC’s Vocational Nursing Program Offering $1,500 Scholarships
The Victoria College Foundation continues to do awesome things! Victoria College’s Zelda L. Allen School of Nursing is offering a $1,500 scholarship to all students accepted into its Vocational Nursing Program for the Spring 2021 and Summer 2021 semesters.
The scholarships are made possible by the VC Foundation through a generous donation from the Dickson Allen Foundation. Eligible students will receive a $1,000 scholarship in the spring and $500 scholarship in the summer.
Victoria College’s Vocational Nursing Program is a 12-month certificate program offered on VC’s Main Campus and in Cuero, Gonzales, and Hallettsville. The program is fully approved by the Texas Board of Nursing. Successful completion of the program enables students to take the National Licensure Exam for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN). Satisfactory achievement on the exam qualifies students for licensure as a vocational nurse.
A licensed vocational nurse (LVN) works closely with patients to maintain their basic medical care. LVNs are supervised by registered nurses (RNs) or doctors as they provide basic bedside care and promote preventative health measures. LVNs may give patients medication or injections, run tests, check routine vital signs, insert and monitor catheters, and aid in other simple medical procedures.
The next class begins on Jan. 11. The Spring 2021 Application Packet can be accessed online at VictoriaCollege.edu/VocationalNursing.
The deadline to apply for the Zelda L. Allen School of Nursing’s Spring 2021 semester is Oct. 1.
