LSC-Montgomery Nursing Department

nurses with patient

LSC-Montgomery offers training to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN), and two options to become a Registered Nurse (RN).

Vocational Nursing – Always in high demand, licensed vocational nurses provide a wide variety of essential patient care, under the supervision of a registered nurse or physician.  Graduates are eligible for licensing as an LVN and typically pursue careers at hospitals, long-term facilities, clinics, and other healthcare facilities.

(How to Apply)

Associate Degree Nursing  Combining the art of caring with the science of nursing, the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program is one of the most in-demand, high-growth career tracks in the industry.  Graduates are eligible to become a registered nurse (RN), providing and coordinating care for patients in a variety of healthcare settings. Two options are available to achieve an ADN at LSC-Montgomery.  Students can earn their ADN in the Transition program which is designed to transition LVN and Licensed Paramedic (LPM) in earning their ADN. An ADN is also achievable through the Basic Track program, a two-year program designed for students with no previous nursing or paramedic education.
