Schreiner’s Vocational Nursing program redesigns curriculum  

Starting with the fall 2008 semester, there are some changes in the design of Schreiner University’s Vocational Nursing program. The 12-month program will have three semesters and will now be a credit hour program.

The first semester gives students the opportunity to complete 15 credit hours, after which they are eligible to take the certified nurse aide test. At the end of the second semester, students will have earned another 17 credit hours, at which time they may choose to take the medication aide test. The third semester is also 15 credit hours, and students are eligible to take the State Board of Nursing exam to become a Licensed Vocational Nursing successfully completing the three semesters. An added benefit is that after passing each test the student immediately qualifies for greater responsibility in their health care jobs.

Schreiner University is now accepting applications for classes starting in January and May 2009. The application deadline for January is October 15 and for May, Feb. 15, 2009.

All accepted applicants receive grants from Schreiner and the University’s Office for Admission and Financial Aid will help students apply for state and federal aid.

For more information, call Donna Keeling in Schreiner’s Office of Admission and Financial Aid, 830-792-7217.
