Our program(s) Associate in Science Nursing Program and LVN Career Mobility prepares graduates to practice as a registered nurse (RN), following successful completion of the state NCLEX examination. We provide learning opportunities consistent with the requirements of the California Board of Registered Nursing and in accordance with the philosophy, mission, values, and objectives of our program, college, and district.
As a student nurse learning to accomplish the professional roles of the Registered Nurse takes a tremendous amount of initiative, work ethic, maturity, and personal responsibility. The program facilitates this learning for the student nurse by creating active educational opportunities in which both teacher and student participate.
Nursing graduates become registered nurses that optimize health and abilities, prevent illness and injury, facilitate healing, alleviate suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocating in the care of individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations.
Registered Nurses may work in a variety of healthcare settings including hospitals, offices, clinics, corporations, schools, and home health. Within the settings they work within specialty areas such as the emergency room, surgery, pediatrics, maternity, older adults, or intensive care..
