Frequently Asked Questions

We have answers for your questions!

There are many questions our candidates have when they first come into our institution and while we do recommend that you visit us personally to assist you much better, below are some of the most common questions students have about vocational education.

Vocational Education

Here are some of the most common questions people have about vocational education.

You will be completing your course of study based on hours, not credits that are obtained. However, once you have completed the course you have chosen, you may be able to continue advancing in that branch of medicine with transferable courses. For instance, if you graduate as a vocational nurse and become licensed by the state of Texas, you may then qualify to continue your education by utilizing your license to apply for higher education and get into a Registered Nurse .

We offer pre-health professional courses that will act as a trampoline to introduce you into the healthcare field and allow you to get hands-on experience so that you can continue to climb the career ladder in whichever branch of medicine you choose.

The courses we offer are different lengths and cost, depending on which you choose. Because we do work with FAFSA, Texas Workforce Commission, Texas Migrant Council, and various other entities to help you find the financial assistance you may qualify for and the total amount of out-of-pocket cost, if any, is defined in an case-by-case basis.

We offer many different programs in our school which you can choose from. Allow our admissions representatives to discover your interests, natural abilities and strengths so they can help you make a better, more informed decision to help find the right course for you.

Because we have the advantage of knowing you on a personal level and our focus is your success, we will do whatever is in our power to ensure your journey to make a career change is a rewarding one with tutoring.

Because we want you to invest all the time you can to preparing for your new career, we recommend you not work while attending. But we understand that in addition to being a student, you have a life outside of school. We do offer afternoon and evening courses for those students who may be unable to attend class during the day.

We do not ask that you take any classes prior to enrolling in our institute. If you are interested in the Vocational Nursing program, we ask that you have some background in the medical field and an entrance exam is required before you are accepted into the program as prerequisites. We do view each person individually and would be glad to answer any questions you may have regarding enrollment pre-qualification.

There is no other institute like ours in the Rio Grande Valley. Our dedication to help you change your life is what drives us to improve every aspect of our school. Our goal is to help mold not only competent caring healthcare professionals, but a better well-rounded member of our community.
