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 has programs in Li­censed Voca­tional Nursing (LVN) and Regis­tered Nursing (RN). LVNs provide safe, compas­sionate, and focused nursing care to assigned patients with predict­able health care needs and 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.

There are addi­tional admission require­ments for the Lee College Nursing Program. Please visit for details.
