About California Career College
California Career College has been graduating successful nursing students for more than two decades. The college was founded in 2001 by President and CEO, Susan Naimi. The College received its accreditation from the Board of Vocational Nursing and the Board of Registered Nursing. Initially, the college’s curriculum focused exclusively on the Vocational Nursing Program. In 2016, the College added its Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program and the Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2022.
The college facilities are located in Canoga Park, with two large auditoriums for lecture courses, and a laboratory facility for practical hands-on training prior to the entrance into their clinical rotations. Students have on-campus access to a network of computers and library resources.
Since its inception, California Career College has been open and welcomed all students, regardless of their race, color, ancestry, national origin, religious beliefs, sex or social background. Many students come from a variety of foreign countries and educational backgrounds.
The mission of California Career College is to provide students with the education necessary to meet the varied healthcare needs of the community. Each educational program provides nursing students with the concepts and principles that are basic to nursing and the provision of patient care. The cornerstone of each of CCC’s educational programs has been the problem-solving appraisal of the nursing process (assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation). The role of the nurse as he/she assists the physician and collaborates with the healthcare team will be emphasized throughout both the classroom and clinical curriculum.
California Career Colleges’ faculty are experienced nurses and teachers, many of whom are leaders in the local healthcare community and come from diverse and multicultural backgrounds. Each instructor creates their lesson plans based on guidelines set by the Board of Registered Nursing for the ADN Program, Vocational Nurse Practice Act for the VN program. Each course offered also follows CCC’s educational course objectives, and instructional program plans as well as input from local medical employers in the Los Angeles community.
