ABOUT CALIFORNIA CAREER COLLEGE
Overview & History
California Career College has been graduating successful students for over a decade. The college was founded in 2001 and has received accreditation by the Board of Vocational Nursing and Board of Registered Nursing. Initially, the college's curriculum focused exclusively on the Vocational Nursing Program. In 2016, the College added Associate Degree in Nursing.
The main campus is located in a newly constructed facility at 7003 Owensmouth Avenue in Canoga Park, California. This campus contains two large lecture rooms and laboratory facilities where students can have hands-on training prior to entrance into their clinical rotations. Students also have access to a network of computers and a library resource.
Since its inception, California Career College has been open to all, regardless of race, color, ancestry, national origin, religious beliefs, sex or social background. Our students come from a variety of foreign countries and educational backgrounds.
The Associate Degree in nursing Program and the Vocational Nursing Program at California Career College (the "Programs") will prepare High School Graduates (or equivalent) in the role of nursing, the goal of which is to meet the varied health care needs of the community. The primary focus of the programs will be to provide each student with concepts and principles that are basic to nursing and the provision of patient care. The problem-solving appraisal of the nursing process (assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation) has been integrated throughout the program. 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.
The faculty at California Career College are experienced teachers and nurses, multicultural and diversified in their backgrounds. They provide instruction that is based on the guidelines set by the Board of Registered Nursing for the ADN Program and Vocational Nurse Practice Act for the VN Program, our California Career College course objectives and instructional (program) plans, and interviews with local employers.
Our clinical instructors are comprised of leaders in the healthcare community. They provide innovative training in the local hospitals and long term care facilities so that our students will develop the practical skills necessary to enter the job market.
