About Nursing

The Associate Degree Nursing Program at Kilgore College is based on the belief that the individual is a unique product of their environment, culture, and life experiences. The following concepts form the basis of the program design: the role of the nurse, clinical judgement, and evidence-based practice. Patient centered care, ethical & legal practice, professionalism, and communication are unifying threads that support the concepts and are integrated throughout the curriculum. The Kilgore College School of Nursing Program has been providing quality nursing education to this community for since 1969. A large percentage of the nurses in practice are graduates of the KC nursing program.
