Labette Community College Nursing StudentsThis program is designed for career mobility for the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to transition into the role of the Registered Nurse (RN). Graduates are prepared to take both the Practical Nurse Licensure Exam (NCLEX-PN) and the Registered Nurse Licensure Exam (NCLEX-RN). Under the Kansas Statewide Nursing Articulation Plan, LCC nursing graduates may also continue studies at colleges or universities in Kansas that offer bachelor's degrees in nursing.

Students interested in the Nursing Program can be admitted to the College on the same basis as other students, but admission to the College does not ensure admission into the Nursing Program. Selection and acceptance into the Nursing Program is based on the criteria established by the department.

If you select this program, you will automatically be assigned to the Health Science major until you are admitted into that specific program.
