LVN Admission Process

 

If you are interested in applying to the LVN program at North Central Texas Collge please read the following very carefully. There are several steps in the admission process and you must complete each one to be considered for admission. 

 

Step 1:

You must attend an advisement session. Please see the schedule at the bottom of this page for available dates and times.  You do not have to make an appointment to attend, however be sure to arrive before the scheduled time as the doors are locked at start time. You will receive an application and informational packet at the advisement session. This is when you will apply for the program. You will also be given information on how to register for the PAX entrance exam. Spouses and parents are welcome to attend the advisement session, however due to the nature of the meeting it is not appropriate for children to be in attendance. You must select one campus to apply to and attend the advisement at that campus.


 

Step 2:

After receiving the informational packet you will need to schedule and take your PAX entrance exam.  You will be given testing instructions and dates at the advisement session. The LVN program uses PAX scores only as the basis for admission with each campus accepting the top scores for their next class. It consists of grammar, reading comprehension and mathematics. The cost of the test is $35.00. You can find a PAX study guide here .

 

Step 3:

After all test scores are received and analyzed, students will be notified of acceptance, placement on the waiting list, or if their score was too low to meet admission requirements by mail. Students whose scores were too low are encouraged to reapply to the program at the next available admission. Please do not call the LVN office for test scores. It is against the law to reveal that information over the phone or email. You will be able to access your test scores through the account you will set up when you are registering to test.
