THE BAYTOWN StW Thursday. August 20. 1987 11-A Lee College health occupations program offers choices Whatever your career goal, whatever your previous training may be, the Lee College Division of Health Care Occupations has a place for you. Three nursing programs, as well as emergency medical services and human services programs, are available, with day and evening classes to meet the needs of part-time and full-time students. Rene Maher, division chairman, urges those who desire nursing education to begin planning now for entrance into the associate degree nursing (for registered nurse licensure) or licensed vocational nursing programs. "As a community college, we are dedicated to preparing people for nursing careers, and there's a desperate need for nurses now," said Mrs. Maher. Those who are interested in any of the health care occupations fields are encouraged to contact the division office, 425-6448 or 425-6449, for information on entering any of these programs. In many cases, students can begin taking necessary- academic courses before enrolling in the general nursing curriculum. The transitional nursing program is for current licensed vocational nurses who wish to work toward obtaining registered nursing licensure while continuing their careers in the nursing field. This part-time program is especially designed for the working nurse, with day and evening classes offered. Students in the transitional nursing program will work toward an associate degree in nursing, which makes them eligible to take the state licensure examination for registered nurse certification. The associate degree nursing program is also offered during the day and the evening. The program, accredited by the National League for Nursing, has maintained a 100 percent pass rate for the past five years, a record demonstrating quality instruction and the education of top-notch nursing professionals. According to Mrs. Maher, the area hospitals and other health care agencies are very supportive of the LC nursing programs. By working in the hospitals as part of classroom training, nursing students obtain clinical experience in modern, well-equipped settings. In addition to the undergraduate nursing programs, Lee College offers complete academic preparation for those who are pursuing a baccalaureate degree in nursing. The emergency medical services program offers training for those who desire to become emergency medical technicians or paramedics. Students can also enroll in EMT classes as part-time or full-time students in day or evening classes. Human services classes, offered, through this division, are for those who desire re- certification by the Texas Association of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors (TAADAC) in substance abuse counseling. This new line of courses is open to those who desire a career in this field as well as for others who are interested. Teachers, ministers, parents, nurses, school counselors, probation officers and others who deal directly with people in their lines of work may be particularly interested in this program. Early registration for the fall semester continues through Aug. 19. Registration hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Mondays and ' Tuesdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursdays. Regular registration will be Aug. 24 through 29. For more information, call the Division of Health Care Occupations at 425-6448 or 425-6449.
