Vocational Nursing

The Vocational Nurse is a care giver in acute and extended care facilities. In addition, VNs are employed in home health care, emergency clinics and as reviewers of health care utilization. The Vocational Nursing (VN) program is accredited by the State of California Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians (BVNPT). Upon completion of the program, students are eligible to apply to take the Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians licensing examination to practice as a Vocational Nurse. The VN program is one year and a half (18 month program/ 3 school semesters/ program not offered over the summer) with new enrollment beginning in the fall and spring semesters. The program consists of lecture and laboratory instruction in actual nursing situations.
