RN Programs in Texas


Texas has one of the largest number of nursing schools in the United States of America, so finding RN Programs in Texas that meet your needs is easier than in other states; albeit still competitive.

There are two ways to become an RN in Texas. One way is to complete a two-year Associate Degree program, and the other way is to graduate from a four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. Both of these qualify graduates to take the national exam that is needed for licensure.

RN Licensure in Texas

Those who graduate from an accredited RN program in Texas may apply for their license. Before it is issued, the graduate must take the NCLEX-RN and pass this exam.

Community colleges and other two-year RN training programs have very different requirements. Some admit students who are high school graduates or who have a GED, and they allow students who have not had college preparatory classes in high school to complete them as pre-nursing courses at their school. Other programs are very strict about their admission policies. It is best to contact individual RN programs to discuss their requirements with an admissions counselor. These two-year programs lead to an Associate Degree in Nursing:
