Associate Degree Nursing Program Graduate Success Information

The program tracks graduate success for each cohort of students (traditional path and LVN-RN Transition path), the completion rate of each admitted cohort, and the rate of employment in an RN position within six months for each graduated cohort. The program bases the completion rate on the formula used by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) of allowing three years to complete the two-year traditional track, and 18 months to complete the one-year LVN-RN Transition track.
