Located on the Brenham Campus, Blinn’s Vocational Nursing Program offers students the choice of a 10-month, face-to-face track where students attend class and clinicals each day during the week, and a 12-month, online-blended track where theory courses are taught online and labs and clinicals are taught in person on Fridays and weekends. The online-blended track is designed for working professionals.

According to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, almost 98% of Blinn’s graduates from the program during the past three years have found jobs in the profession. Program graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN) and the Nursing Jurisprudence Examination and are considered licensed vocational nurses after passing both exams.

Blinn’s Vocational Nursing Program graduates consistently post first-attempt passing rates well above the Texas and national averages. In 2020, 100% of Blinn’s Brenham Campus and online-blended vocational nursing graduates passed their National Council Licensure Examination. Graduates who pass the state board exams are qualified to work in a variety of settings, including home health care, dialysis, hospitals, clinics, and physicians’ offices.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the 2020 annual median pay for vocational nurses was $48,820, and employment is expected to increase 9% between 2020 and 2030, creating 63,800 new jobs nationwide.

For current licensed vocational nurses (LVNs), Blinn also offers its LVN-Transition Program. Through this one-year program, LVNs can earn their associate degree in nursing.
