The Vocational Nursing Certificate Program is designed to enable students to acquire the knowledge, skills, and competencies related to enhancing the health and well-being of individuals. The Vocational Nursing student will learn basic nursing care skills to be competent in caring for acutely and chronically ill clients, with predictable health outcomes, in structured settings such as hospitals, skilled-nursing facilities, a clinic, doctor’s offices, long-term care, corrections, home health care or for a nursing registry. Duties within the scope of practice for a vocational nurse typically include, but are not limited to, provision of basic hygienic and nursing care; measurement of vital signs; basic client assessment; documentation; performance of prescribed medical treatments; administration of prescribed medications; and, performance of non-medicated intravenous therapy and blood withdrawal (requires separate Board certification). At SSKI, we provide hands on training from competent experienced and board approved educators.

The program has classroom instruction and required clinical experiences to prepare the student to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN) for licensure as a practical or vocational nurse. Those that pass qualify for entry-level employment as Licensed Vocational Nurses.
