The Lee College Nursing Pro­gram can help you take advan­tage of the vast health care career oppor­tuni­ties that exist in the Houston Metro­politan region and beyond. Nursing is a high-pay­ing, well-respec­ted, and in-de­mand career path. Job oppor­tun­ities include hospi­tals, clinics, home health care facili­ties, long-term care facili­ties, industry, and spe­cialty health care hospi­tal units.

Lee College offers two tracks for Regis­tered Nursing (RN) — a generic track for traditional students and an LVN-RN transition track for licensed vocational nurses wanting to continue their education. RNs provide and coor­dinate safe, compas­sionate, full nursing care to assigned patients in a variety of settings. The cur­riculum provides students with nursing theory and clinical experi­ences that prepare them to be eligible to take the exam­ination for licensure.

In order to accommodate greater demand for the Registered Nursing (RN) program, the Licensed Vocational Nursing (LVN) program has been closed as of Fall, 2024, and the nursing labs and faculty are now exclusively for RN students.
