Our Vocational Nursing Program

Our 15-month Vocational Nursing program combines theory, technical skills, pharmacology, NCLEX preparation and off-site clinical nursing experience to provide you with the skills to start an entry-level healthcare provider. The program is available at our Los Angeles and Ontario, California campuses and enrolls on a quarterly basis. Our current combined California NCLEX pass rate is 94.19% at our Los Angeles and Ontario campus*. As the demand for nurses continues to grow, our goal is to ensure that each student can meet the industry’s demands and make a difference in the community.

Congratulations Alicia! You have already had such a positive impact on our students and can’t wait to see where your leadership will take us at Smith Chason School of Nursing.
