Program Description

The Vocational Nursing Program requires three semesters of academic work and clinical experience which meets the Basic Curriculum guidelines set forth in Section 2533, Rules and Regulations of the Board of Vocational Nurse and Psychiatric Technician.

 

These Guidelines are:
The Vocational Nursing Program shall include, but is not limited to, theory and correlated clinical experience which develops the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to care for clients of all ages in current health care settings. The curriculum content is taught in a sequence that results in student’s progressive mastery of knowledge, skills, and abilities.

Philosophy and Objectives
The Vocational Nursing program abides by the general policies of Contra Costa Community College District and supports the educational philosophy of Los Medanos College.

Vocational Nursing is an integral and essential part of all nursing. The Vocational Nursing program is a self-contained course of nursing education which draws identifiable concepts from nursing and blends them into such an integrated whole of learning experiences to produce an effective practitioner within the defined scope of practice.

The vocational nurse is prepared to assume responsibility under the direction of a registered nurse or physician when giving nursing care in simple situations and assisting with nursing care in more complex nursing situations.
