The nursing profession is experiencing growth due to aging populations and long-term care needs. This trend will lead to increased employment of licensed vocational nurses in hospitals, physicians' offices, and other healthcare settings.
The SBBCollege Vocational Nursing program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary for an entry-level vocational nursing position in a variety of healthcare related settings.
Students in the SBBCollege Vocational Nursing Program learn vital signs assessment, medication administration and other patient care skills in a clinical setting. The hands-on training provides students an understanding of skills for patient care and safety, such as hygiene, feeding, transfer techniques, medication administration, oxygen administration, Foley catheter insertion and care, tracheostomy care, and wound care.
SBBCollege nursing students practice the techniques they learn in a supervised laboratory setting and then perfect them at clinical sites with real patients.
After 60 weeks of hands-on training, graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical/ Vocational Nurses (NCLEX-PN), which is administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN).
The Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), requires postsecondary education institutions to distribute or make available consumer information, including graduation rates, median debt of graduates, and other important information.
