Our Programs

Vocational Nursing

 

Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs), sometimes called Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), provide direct medical care to patients under the direction of doctors and registered nurses. LVNs often have more contact with patients than any other member of the healthcare team. If you’re a compassionate person interested in helping others as a nurse, Vocational Nursing training could put you on the path to a rewarding career.

Unitek College offers certificate and associate degree programs in Vocational Nursing. Our intensive 11 month Vocational Nursing Certificate Program covers clinical and theory components to prepare graduates to take the NCLEX-PN licensing exam, and work as a generalist Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN). All Unitek College pre-licensure Vocational Nursing students complete clinical rotations at a healthcare facility as a part of their curriculum.

Educational objectives include: collaborating effectively with clients, families, and health care teams to provide holistic care; assisting in the formulation of a problem-solving approach to deliver basic nursing care to clients; and coordinating patient care with other members of a health care team within the standards of practice.
