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.
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-Kingwood. 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.
In order to assist you in your learning more about nursing as a career and the particular requirements of the Associate Degree, Vocational Nursing, and LVN/Paramedic transition programs, nursing information sessions are held throughout the year.
We strongly encourage you to attend an information session to learn more about the profession and requirements of each of the nursing programs. No reservations are needed to attend an information session on the LSC-Kingwood campus. Each session lasts about one to two hours.
