Vocational Nursing Program

Our program began in 1953 and to date we have more than 1800 students who have completed the program. Vocational nurses in California are called Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) after they pass the state NCLEX-PN examination for licensure (in many other states they are called  Licensed Practical nurses).

Licensed vocational nurses (LVNs) work under the direction of a physician or registered nurse, utilizing scientific and technical expertise and manual skills to provide direct patient care to assigned patients. Duties within the scope of practice of the LVN typically include, but are not limited to, the provision of basic hygienic nursing care, measurement of temperature, pulse, respirations and blood pressure, basic prescribed medications, performance of skin testing and patient education. Vocational nurses are prepared with the knowledge, skills and ability to administer safe, competent nursing care as a beginning level practitioner in a variety of settings.
