Hello! We will be relocating to the Houston area this summer and I need info on all the different schools that have LVN to RN bridge. I currently work at a large hospital on a stroke/med surge unit in Texas and applied to a local program for summer, but didn't get in. Now we are going to be moving with my husbands job so I need to find a school! I know I will never find an LVN position in a hospital in that area.

Welcome to Houston! You're correct in assuming that there is very little likelihood of finding an LVN job in a Houston hospital. It will also be difficult to find one as an ADN, so I strongly encourage you to bridge to BSN if you wan to work in acute care.
Here is a listing of all approved nursing programs in Tx - and what type of program they are. http://www.bon.texas.gov/nursingeduc.../rnschools.pdf
. Be sure to also take a look at this - http://www.bon.texas.gov/nursingeduc...srate-2013.pdf
. It is the NCLEX pass rates for Tx RN programs for the last 5 years.
This should enable you to make an informed choice. Wishing you great success in your educational journey.

Please point me in the right direction for acute care... All the hospitals I have spoken too tell me no lvns. I plan on getting my BSN, but I need yo start some where. Are the programs super competitive like most places?
