Top hospitals in the state, according to the Houston Business Journal, include the University of Texas at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Texas Children's Hospital, and St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital's Texas Heart Institute.

Nursing Schools in Texas

Campus-based and online nursing schools are options for those seeking nursing training. Many Texas nursing schools are accessible to students that live within the state's metropolitan areas, but some classes can also be taken online.

RNs graduate from Texas nursing schools with an associate's degree in nursing (ADN), a bachelor's of science degree in nursing (BSN), or a diploma. After graduating from an approved program in nursing, nurses must pass the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). RNs with advanced responsibilities need to possess a master's degree. A diploma program administered by a hospital takes about three years to complete.

LPN and LVN training programs in technical and vocational schools and community colleges typically require about a year to finish. The licensure examination for certification is the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN) offered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. If you want to make the Lone Star state your place to study, then say saddle up for an education from one of the nursing schools in Texas today.
