VOCATIONAL NURSE TRAINING PROGRAM

The North Orange County ROP Vocational Nurse Training Program is designed to equip adult students with the necessary knowledge and skills to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) in California. A licensed vocational nurse works under the supervision and direction of registered nurses and doctors to administer basic nursing care. LVNs may work in hospitals, long-term care facilities, hospice, or home/residential care facilities. Some tasks performed by an LVN can include checking blood pressure, wound care, helping bathe or dress patients, help deliver, care for, and feed infants, collect samples for testing, and much more.

Program Outcome:

Students who successfully complete the program will be assisted in the process of taking the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN).

North Orange County ROP’s Vocational Nurse Training Program is approved by the California Department of Education and licensed by the Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians. All North Orange County ROP courses are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
