Licensed Vocational Nursing
Since its founding in 1948 the Licensed Vocational Nurse Department
has been dedicated to Vocational Nurse Education, later Nurse
Assistant/Home Health Aid Education, and Refresher program. Faculty is
constantly exploring more creative and innovative measures to assure
the quality of education, while being faithful to its basic
principles. In an effort to conceptualize its reason for being the
department developed the following mission statement.
The City College of San Francisco's Licensed Vocational Nursing
Department provides curricula that prepare students for State License
in Vocational Nursing; State Certificate in Nurse Assistant/Home
Health Aide; and offers short-term training programs in Geriatric Home
Aide, Care of Clients with Alzheimer's, Care of Clients with AIDs, and
Care of the Developmentally Disabled.
Currently the City & County of San Francisco has issued a Shelter-In-Place order. Due to this, all campus locations remain closed and courses are taught online, until further notice.
