The purpose of the Associate Degree Nursing Program is to prepare students with beginning competencies to practice as registered nurses upon successful writing of the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. The program is accredited by the Texas Board of Nursing and the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN), 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, GA 30326.

It is recommended that the applicant complete some or all of the general education courses in the curriculum prior to entry into the program. After successful completion of this program, the graduate is eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. Upon passing the examination, the graduate is licensed as a Registered Nurse. Job opportunities include hospitals, clinics, home health care facilities, long-term care facilities, industry, and specialty health care hospital units. The registered nurse works within the scope of nursing as defined by the Nursing Practice Act in the State of Texas.

Lee College Nursing Division is committed to lifelong learning and encourage students to continue their education. Lee College Nursing Division has articulation agreements for RN-BSN programs with Lamar University, Texas Tech University, and Chamberlain University. Once the Associate Degree Nursing graduate passes the NCLEX-RN exam, they are eligible to transition to a BSN program. Articulation agreements make this transition seamless. Students interested in pursuing RN-BSN programs should contact the nursing admissions or the counseling office for more information.

Degree plans information and admission criteria can be found in the current edition of the Lee College catalog or contact the nursing admission office at 281.425.6229.
