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. With a degree in nursing from Lee College, you can become an RN in just two years or transfer to a four-year university to obtain your bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree.

The curriculum provides students with nursing theory and clinical experiences that prepare them to be eligible to take the examination for licensure as a registered nurse, as defined by the Texas Board of Nursing.

What Will I Learn?

Each semester students will be enrolled in theory and clinical courses. In addition, skills courses are taught in the first year of the program. During the last semester capstone course, students spend approximately half of the semester in a preceptors (mentored) experience. The ADN program has clinical affiliates throughout the Houston-Galveston region, including the Texas Medical Center.

Upon acceptance into the Nursing program, you will learn:

  • Theory and clinical laboratory skills
  • Ethics and standards of practice
  • Patient care technologies
  • How to identify problems and develop plans of care for patients and their families
  • How to delegate, manage and lead others
