Lorain County Community College’s nursing programs are taught by renowned faculty, many of whom have years of experience both teaching and working in the field. In fact, more LCCC nursing faculty have advanced degrees than any other program in the region.  You will truly be learning from the best of the best.

We offer three pathways to becoming a Registered Nurse allowing you to enter the program that fits your experience level. And for those looking for an advanced degree, we have partnerships with both Ohio University and Western Governor’s University to earn your bachelor’s in nursing (RN to BSN) and increase your earning potential even further.
