Associate Degree Nursing: L.V.N. to A.D.N. Curriculum Track

The Brazosport College LVN to ADN Curriculum Track is a three semester plan of study designed for the LVN transitioning to the professional nursing role. Upon satisfactory completion of all college, program, and board of nursing requirements students are awarded an Associate in Applied Science Degree (A.A.S.) in Nursing and are eligible for the National Council Licensure Exam for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). 

Application to the LVN to ADN Curriculum Track is a two-step process.

1. Applicants must satisfy all TSI requirements and Brazosport College application and admission requirements including submission of original transcripts from all previous colleges, nursing programs, and high schools.

2. An additional, separate application is required for the LVN to ADN Curriculum Track. Applications are available August through October of each academic year.

The LVN to ADN Curriculum Track program admission process is highly competitive. Minimum cumulative and prerequisite GPA requirement is 2.5 or greater. The average GPA for applicants accepted to the program is 3.0 or higher. Applicants must complete the TEAS readiness assessment during the application period. The first attempt score (per year) is the score used to assess readiness. Generally, a TEAS score or index level of “Proficient” is the minimum competitive level
