Vocational Nursing:

  • Schreiner University offers an exciting and intense one year Vocational Nursing Program twice a year (classes starting in January and June).  You will participate in extensive hands-on clinical training to enhance your classroom learning.  The program is Monday – Thursday for the first two semesters and Tuesday – Friday for the third semester. Each week will include two days of classroom learning and two days of clinical training.  You must be a high school graduate or have GED equivalence, as well as an assessment in Math and English.  We do not require any college prerequisites before starting the Vocational Nursing Program. Once you complete and graduate the Vocational Nursing Program you will have to take and pass your state board exam with the Texas Board of Nursing to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN).

Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN):

  • The United States is the midst of a critical nursing shortage that is expected to intensify as baby boomers age and the need for health care grows. Over the past decade, both in Texas and nationally, there has been an escalating demand for RNs that exceeds the current RN-supply—and that nation-wide shortage is expected to increase to approximately 260,000 RNs by 2025. The new four year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree program at Schreiner University will allow the Hill Country to grow a local supply of quality RNs to help meet such rising healthcare demand in and around our own community. Prior to admission in the BSN program, a number of pre-requisite courses are required.

  • The BSN program at Schreiner University is approved by the Texas Board of Nursing and accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. We are a member of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN).

  • This four year program consists of two years of prerequisite courses, followed by a second competitive application process and two years of upper level nursing courses and hands-on clinical training. Thirty students are accepted each fall into the upper level program. Students must apply first with the Admission Office for undergraduate degrees and complete all prerequisite requirements before applying into the BSN program.
  • Students must apply first with the Admission Office for undergraduate degrees and complete all prerequisite requirements before applying into the BSN program. Applications for freshmen and transfers are available through the Admission Office online.
