Vocational Nursing Certificate - Blended Online Option

Blended Online Option

The blended online program is a uniquely designed program for detail oriented, motivated, self-starters and is held on the Brenham Campus. The program starts in August and ends in August. The program is NOT completely online. All theory courses are delivered in an online format (students are required to come to campus for all quizzes and testing). Labs and clinicals are delivered in-person during the week and are required to be completed in the Brenham area as they must be supervised by the Blinn College Vocational Nursing Program Faculty. The hours vary according to the day, and the semester. 

  • In the Fall semester, students are on-campus Wednesdays 8:00 am- 5:00 pm and Thursdays 6:30 am- 5:00 pm. 
  • In the Spring semester, students have in-person clinicals Mondays, Tuesdays 6:30 am - 5:00 pm, and Wednesdays 1:00 pm- 4:00 pm.
