The Transition Associate Degree Nursing Program is a 12 month program that has been developed for the currently licensed Vocational Nurse. The lecture portion of this program is performed in the online learning environment. The program is approved by the Texas Board of Nursing and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The program at Howard College, 1001 Birdwell Lane in Big Spring, TX, is accredited by the: Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) 3390 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 1400 Atlanta, GA 30326. Phone # (404) 975-5000 https://www.acenursing.org/. The most recent accreditation decision made by the ACEN Board of Commissioners for the associate degree nursing program is Continuing Accreditation. The students who enter this program are Vocational Nurses who have recently completed their VN requirements or who have been practicing a year or, in some cases many years, and who wish to further their education and become a Registered Nurse. The Vocational Nurse who is admitted to this program will take a Transition Nursing course in the first semester, and upon successful completion of this class will merge with the second year generic ADN students. Some of our ADN students take advantage of our articulation agreements with Texas Universities and go on to earn their BSN degree.
