Associate Degree in Nursing Program

California Career College is proud to offer our Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program. This is a comprehensive program with both theory and clinical courses designed to prepare students for entry-level registered nurse positions in a variety of healthcare environments. Graduates will use critical thinking skills for effective problem-solving, decision-making, and independent judgment to provide culturally competent and developmentally appropriate care in the practice of nursing and to function as a member of a healthcare team. Upon successful completion of the curriculum, students are eligible to sit for the NCLEX to become registered nurses. The graduate must apply to and meet the requirements of the appropriate state board of nursing for licensure as a registered nurse, which includes successful completion of the NCLEX-RN.

ADN Program at California Career College

California Career College has offered our ADN program since 2016. California Career College was the first ADN program in the nation to offer both theory and clinical classes only 3 days per week. California Career College recognizes that many students work full or part-time and to advance their education by attending classes and clinicals full-time is challenging. California Career College is a convenient choice for people working while looking forward to advancing their education and careers.

The ADN Program at California Career College includes courses in:

  • Communication Techniques
  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Terminology
  • Psychology
  • General Nursing Skills
  • Gerontology
  • Maternal and Child Health
  • Pharmacology

Our ADN courses are designed to ensure students experience a curriculum that is current, reality-based and sensitive to multicultural diversity. The 24-month program provides extensive hands-on experience in healthcare settings that range from acute to long-term care, home healthcare and other community healthcare agencies. That’s why, among nursing schools in Los Angeles, ours stands out as one of the most effective at teaching skills that are most sought after by medical employers.

California Career Colleges’ educators bring their real-world experience to the classroom and are dedicated to teaching the core nursing concepts and principles that are at the heart of patient care. Through assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation, our faculty of experienced teachers and nurses provide instruction that is based on guidelines set by the Board of Registered Nursing, and the feedback we receive from our ongoing discussions and relationships with local healthcare employers.
