Vocational Nursing

Certificate of Completion

The Vocational Nursing program is regulated by the Board of Vocational Nurse & Psychiatric Technicians commonly referred to as BVNPT (Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians). Students will gain the knowledge of nursing science in a supportive learning environment that values a diverse group of students in acquiring the necessary skills to become eligible for the NCLEX-PN examination of the National Council of State Board of Nursing in the State of California. Students successfully completing the Vocational Nursing Program will be able to meet the requirements for the vocational nurse licensure as specified in the Vocational Nurse Practice Act. This program is specifically for noncredit adult students who are seeking training in the health field for immediate employment and future health career ladders. Once licensed, the LVN (Licensed Vocational Nurse) may find employment in hospitals, clinics, private physicians’ offices, and
skilled nursing facilities. Students must pass all three core courses to earn the Vocational Nursing certificate.
