Welcome to the  Nursing Programs



There's never been a better time than right now to become a Nurse.  With more and more people living longer and needing more care, there's a desperate need for qualified Nursing professionals. It's a great opportunity to enter a career field that offers a competitive salary, excellent benefits, and a high degree of job satisfaction. With a nursing degree, you can shape your career as you go, taking the opportunities that fit you best. At Laredo College students have the option to obtain an Associate Degree in Nursing either by the TWO Year Program or the Transition Program. Laredo College Associate Degree Nursing Program was recognized as the Number One Community College Nursing Program in Texas and the Number Seven Nursing Program in Texas for 2018 through the online resource, by examining the pass rates in the last five years in schools.
