Vocational Nursing

Austin Community College’s Vocational Nursing Program provides the training you need to pass the National Council Licensure Examination of Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN) and pursue a rewarding career in nursing. As a vocational nurse, you’ll provide essential, life-enhancing care under the supervision of a registered nurse or physician. Graduates of ACC’s Vocational Nursing Program typically go on to work in hospitals, long-term care centers, clinics, and other healthcare facilities.
