LVN-RN Transition Program or Transition Re-admission Program

Download LVN-RN Transition Program PDF

I have reviewed and understand the program information posted under the link above.

Students that have previously been enrolled in the transition program will be considered as Transition Re-admission Students: Re-admission to the transition program is possible ONLY for those students who passed the Transition to Professional Nursing (RNSG 1327) course during their previous admission. Selected applicants will retake all nursing courses required after admission to the program including the summer Transition to Professional Nursing course (RNSG 1327). RNSG 1311 (prerequisite course) will only need to be retaken if it has exceeded the 3year limit by the first day of class. Note - If a student is accepted as a new Transition student after failure of one course in the previous enrollment, the 2nd course failure rule continues to apply. The initial failure will count as the 1st failure and, if a student fails a course in the new enrollment, it will count as the 2nd failure and will result in dismissal from the program and ineligibility for re-admission or re-entry.

Nursing Transfer Program

I have reviewed and understand the program information posted under the link above.

Students are encouraged to take nursing courses in residence. An applicant seeking recognition of previously earned nursing credits at another college or university Nursing Program must meet all requirements for admission and be selected for admission. In addition, the applicant must submit:
  1. Course syllabus containing course outline(s) and course objective(s) for all earned nursing credits which are to be evaluated. A course description is not acceptable.
  2. A letter of recommendation from the Dean/Director of the Nursing Program previously attended.
  3. Any nursing courses which have been successfully completed more than three (3) years prior to admission into the program will not be valid for re-admission. If nursing courses were transferred in from another school and they are over the 3 year limit, they must be retaken also. Students who have not been enrolled in the Vernon College ADN program for three (3) or more years will have the option to retake the course or will be required to attain a satisfactory score on a comprehensive exam for each nursing course completed before readmission and demonstrate clinical competency in selected nursing procedures.
  4. A minimum grade point average of 2.75 will be required for admission.
  5. Transfer students selected for readmission will be required to perform the same criminal background check as newly admitted students.
  6. Students who think they may be ineligible for licensure due to criminal convictions, mental or physical disability, and/or intemperate use of drugs or alcohol should schedule an appointment with the program Director prior to admission to obtain instructions on petitioning the State Nursing Board for a declaratory order to determine their eligibility.

Upon receipt, the Nursing Admissions and Review Committee will review all materials to determine which, if any, credits will be considered transferable. Transferability is considered in terms of similarity in course content, course grades, course credits, and course sequence.

Applicants requesting consideration as a transfer student from another Nursing Program in which they could not progress will be considered on an individual basis.

After this review, qualified transfer students may be admitted on a space-available basis.

VC Re-entry Program

I have reviewed and understand the program information posted under the link above.

Students who are unsuccessful in the Nursing Program may be considered for re-entry once. Students accepted for the VC Re-entry Program are not required to repeat courses in which they were previously successful. Various factors will determine re-entry eligibility. Students returning to the Nursing Program without consecutive learning and incurring a lapse of more than one year in their program of learning may be assessed additional cost of testing to determine placement level of re-entry. Students applying for re-entry must provide the Nursing Department with the cause for course interruption or course failure and the corrective actions to be taken to ensure course success if re-entry is granted.

Qualified applicants may be allowed to re-enter the program and enroll in the previously unsuccessful nursing course(s) on a space-available basis or based on other factors according to the following criteria:

  1. Applicants with a clinical failure will receive the lowest priority for re-entry.
  2. An applicant on scholastic probation or enforced withdrawal is not eligible for re-entry.
  3. An applicant may be considered for re-entry after two failures only if the applicant can justify re-entry. The Nursing Admissions Committee may consider extenuating circumstances.
  4. Any student approved for re-entry into the program will be required to provide proof of completion of a review course that is approved by the Director of Nursing, before the Director’s Affidavit for licensure application will be sent to the Texas Board of Nursing.
  5. An applicant who is approved for re-entry into the program may be allowed to enroll only if there is space available in the desired course and/or associated clinicals, and only if no other barriers to enrollment, such as program status, exist.
  6. Applicants with an overall GPA in the ADN program pre-requisite courses of less than 2.75 or a GPA in their RNSG courses of less than 2.0 will not be eligible for re-entry.
  7. Any nursing courses which have been successfully completed more than three (3) years prior to the first day of class after admission into the program will not be valid for re-entry. If nursing courses were transferred in from another school and they are over the 3 year limit, they must be retaken also. Students who have not been enrolled in the Vernon College ADN program for three (3) or more years will have the option to retake the course or will be required to attain a satisfactory score on a comprehensive exam for each nursing course completed before re-entry and demonstrate clinical competency in selected nursing procedures.
  8. Students approved for re-entry will be required to perform the same criminal background check as newly admitted students.
  9. Students who think they may be ineligible for licensure due to criminal convictions, mental or physical disability, and/or intemperate use of drugs or alcohol should schedule an appointment with the program Director prior to admission to obtain instructions on petitioning the State Nursing Board for a declaratory order to determine their eligibility.
  10. The LVN Transition course (RNSG 1327) is a "one time only" opportunity and re-entry into the LVN Transition program is not an available option for students who fail this course. Any student failing the LVN Transition course (RNSG 1327) may apply for the Generic program in the next available fall semester.

The student involved is responsible for calling on or before the beginning of registration to determine eligibility for enrollment. Any student approved for re-entry will be required to provide proof of completion of a review course approved by the Director of Nursing after completing program requirements and before the Director’s Affidavit for licensure application will be sent to the Texas Board of Nursing.
