LCC Named as the #1 Community College Nursing Program in Texas
Laredo Community College is honored to receive the stellar designation of being the number one community college nursing program in Texas. Additionally, of the 116 nursing programs available in Texas to become a registered nurse, the LCC Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program has been selected by RegisteredNursing.org as the seventh-best nursing program in the state among colleges and universities.
RegisteredNursing.org is an online resource dedicated to informing future and currently registered nurses on educational pathways and career opportunities in nursing.
As they stated on their website, “We are firm believers in providing students with all the information possible to make the right choice when selecting a nursing school.”
The website ranked the top 50 nursing schools in Texas by analyzing current and previous National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) pass rates. Programs reviewed include schools offering an Associate in Nursing (ADN/ASN), Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing, or a direct-entry Master of Science degree in Nursing. The study analyzed examination pass rates for the past five years.
“The outstanding ranking is a direct result of the quality instruction offered through LCC’s ADN program”, explained LCC Nursing Programs Director Dr. Dianna Miller.
“The Associate Degree Nursing faculty have worked diligently to provide an excellent Nursing Program for Laredo. As noted in the rankings, our program is exceptional. Besides the excellent NCLEX Passage Rates, we believe our graduates are outstanding, compassionate nurses,” said Dr. Miller.
Individuals interested in pursuing a career in a healthcare related field should consider the advantages offered by LCC’s Nursing Programs. For those interested in a career in nursing, prospective students can explore three different options, including the nursing assistant or vocational nursing certificate, or an associate degree in nursing.
After completing the programs and passing the national licensing exam, LCC graduates can begin working in the healthcare field anywhere in the United States after one or two years of study.
