LCC nursing program waives a requirement for admission

Lamar Community College Nursing Program is waiving the requirement of the Kaplan Admission Assessment Exam as a requirement for admission into the program for the Fall 2020 semester.

All other requirements remain in effect, including the successful completion of all prerequisite coursework and GPA of 2.5 or greater.

"Now is the best time to become a nurse and an essential employee," said program director Kathy Henderson. "Machines and robots will never be able to take the place of the care a professional nurse can provide a patient. If you like to care for people and have a desire to be able to work in many different environments, now is the time to start nursing classes at Lamar Community College."

This decision is made in the wake of COVID-19. Waiving this requirement for admission allows continued social distancing throughout the summer.
