Vocational Nursing

Achieve a Diploma in as few as 13 months*

As a licensed vocational nurse (LVN), you will work under the supervision and direction of registered nurses and doctors while administering basic patient care. LVNs may work in hospitals, long-term care facilities, hospice, or home/residential care facilities. Some LVN duties in these facilities can include wound care, helping bathe or dress patients, help deliver, care for, and feed infants, collect samples for testing, and much more.

Achieve Your Dreams

While in school, vocational nurses may learn preventive, therapeutic, rehabilitative, and restorative nursing care plus nursing interventions. You can find LVN diploma programs at several of our Concorde Career College campuses. See if a campus offering LVN classes is near you.
