Do you enjoy helping and caring for people? Allan Hancock College offers the opportunity to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN). Your compassion and skill in patient care will help minimize the stress of patients and provide much needed support for registered RNs. You will care for people who are sick, injured, convalescent, or disabled under the direction of physicians and registered nurses.

The licensed vocational nursing program is a twelve-month program offered every year, January through December (including summer session). Current California Certified Nursing Assistants who have completed program prerequisites are eligible to apply. The curriculum is designed to prepare the CNA to become an LVN. Classroom study covers basic nursing concepts and subjects related to patient care, including anatomy, physiology, medical-surgical nursing, pediatrics, obstetrics nursing, pharmacology, nutrition, and first aid. Clinical practice takes place in our labs, local hospitals and medical care facilities.

Students must complete the state-mandated hours in classroom and hospital experience in order to be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Vocational Nurses. The Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians (BVNPT) have fully accredited this program. Students accepted into the program must comply with background checks and drug screening required by clinical agencies.

"I chose to come to Allan Hancock College because I've heard so many great things about the nursing program here. We have a really high pass rate for the state boards compared to other schools. The instructors are extremely supportive here and want us to succeed; they go out of the way to see how students learn and cater to that even outside the classroom environment."
