We offer two exceptional nursing programs. The Associate Degree Program in Nursing (ADN) is a four-semester program approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing. It is designed to prepare and qualify you to practice nursing in entry-level positions. Upon completion of the program, if successful, you are awarded an AS Degree in Nursing and are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nursing (NCLEX-RN). Once licensed as a Registered Nurse (RN), you are prepared to coordinate, plan, and provide nursing care in hospitals and community settings. Registered Nurses assist patients with personal care, provides teaching and counseling to prevent illness and promote health, perform specialized treatments, and administer medications. Registered Nurses function as team leaders, direct the care provided by Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN), nursing assistances, as well as unlicensed healthcare workers.
The Licensed Vocational Nursing (LVN) program is an extended 23-month program that is designed to prepare you to practice Vocational Nursing. Classes are held on Thursdays and Fridays. The program is approved by the California Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians (BVNPT). The program is patient-centered offered in cooperation with community hospitals.
