Joe G. Davis School of Vocational Nursing
** The Joe G. Davis School of Vocational Nursing application process is complete for the 2015 School Year and will begin accepting applications for the 2016 school year in May 2015.
One of the best kept secrets in Walker County is Huntsville Memorial Hospital’s nursing school. The Joe G. Davis School of Vocational Nursing is a one-year, hospital-based program which prepares students to take the Vocational Nursing Licensure Examination in order to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN).
The program is accredited, surveyed and reviewed by the Texas Board of Nursing.
The HMH School of Vocational Nursing was established in April 1966, with the first class enrolled in September 1966 and graduating in August 1967. In 1977, the school was renamed the Huntsville Memorial Hospital Joe G. Davis School of Vocational Nursing in memory of Joe G. Davis, a member of the HMH Board of Trustees from 1945 to 1972.
The school requires the following to be submitted with a legible, fully completed and signed school application:
After submitting an application, all students will be required to complete pre-entrance testing and ones will be chosen from the top 15% of testers to return for an interview.
The school recommends basic college level classes below are taken before attending school:
Additional estimated expenses for non school affiliated vendors may cost up to $2500.00.
Our smaller class structure allows the faculty to provide more effective, one-on-one training to the students.
In the beginning of the program, students spend 8 hours a day in a classroom setting. The successful completion of this period of study is marked at a Capping Ceremony where students are given their nurses cap.
After the Capping Ceremony, students then begin clinical training at multiple clinical sites. Successful completion of the Joe G. Davis LVN program and graduation ceremony, allows students to take the Vocational Nursing Licensure Examination through the Texas Board of Nursing. You must pass the Texas Board of Nursing exam to be certified as a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN).
Since its inception, the Joe G. Davis School of Vocational Nursing program has graduated over 780 nurses, and many of the program's graduates have joined the HMH staff after graduation.
