Nursing Department


SCC is cancelling the Spring 2016 VN 120 class. Spring’s selected class will be saved for Fall 2016 enrollment. SCC is tentatively planning to take applications this Spring 2016 for the Spring 2017 class. Please check the nursing website periodically for updates.

The Nursing Department includes two board-approved programs: Associates Degree – Nursing (ADN) and Vocational Nursing (VN). The ADN program is four semesters in length and the VN program is three semesters. Each program has pre-requisite courses, plus nursing theory with concurrent clinical practice. Graduates of both programs are eligible to sit for the licensure examination and are prepared for employment. A career mobility LVN to RN track is also available that culminates in achieving the Associate Degree.

Students with a diagnosed documented disability from a Disability Resource Center Learning Specialist need to submit accommodation paperwork to the SCC Nursing Program Director at least one week prior to the testing date. Each of the designated testing dates can accommodate DSPS students in the computer lab by offering noise reduction headphones, a seat facing the wall, and the extra time required, which is determined by DSPS. Students with questions or concerns are encouraged to call (916) 558-2271 and schedule an appointment with the Program Director.
