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).
