VOCATIONAL NURSING

The Vocational Nursing (VN) Program leads to a certificate of completion and allows the graduate to apply to take the state licensing exam for vocational nursing.

A LICENSED VOCATIONAL NURSE (LVN) is a member of the health care team providing direct care in settings such as hospitals, home health agencies,  and long-term care facilities.

Primary responsibilities include assisting the registered nurse in assessing, planning, implementing, and evaluating nursing care.

An LVN must be able to work well with others and respond to client needs, perform basic math skills and complex procedures, set priorities and organize time, and maintain continuing education.

A full-time program is available and requires approximately one year to complete. An application process is required for admission to the VN program.
