Lorain County Community College has openings in the associate in nursing degree program. Interested candidates should begin prerequisites for the program so they can begin in the spring.
Students should visit Enrollment Services and request to meet with a member of the Health and Wellness team to discuss the application requirements. They can also meet with a counselor or academic advisor. Applicants will also complete the TEAS exam.
Nursing continues to be a growing field. The Center for Health Affairs in Cleveland predicts a continued shortage across Northeast Ohio. The 23 counties of Northeast Ohio have a shortage of about 750 nurses and that number is expected to grow to 3,500 by the year 2020. There are many factors but the number one reason is the demand put on health care by the aging population in Northeast Ohio.
LCCC’s nursing options include:
Associate degree in nursing (RN)
Practical nursing (LPN)
