Vocational Nursing (3 semesters)
We are no longer accepting applications for the 2014-15 Vocational nursing program. The deadline was January 10 by noon.
Vocational Nurses are a vital member of the health team, providing direct patient care in acute, long-term care, and convalescent hospitals. Licensed vocational nurses administer medications, provide bedside care, do treatments, do health teaching, and perform other technical nursing skills under the direction of a physician and/or a registered nurse. Graduates are eligible to take the national licensure examination and qualify for one year of credit toward a registered nursing program at local community colleges and some universities. Job prospects for graduates are excellent. Our program is widely respected throughout the county and state.
