I recently graduated from Unitek's LVN program. This one year program can be quite challenging at times but after I graduated I felt very well prepared for the NCLEX and passed it on the first try!

About Our VN Program

If you’re a compassionate person interested in helping others and you’re looking to start a rewarding professional career without spending years in school, becoming a Licensed Vocational Nurse could be a great opportunity. Licensed Vocational Nurses, or LVNs, assist in the medical care of patients under the direction of doctors and registered nurses. They care for people who are sick, injured, convalescent or disabled. LVNs often have more contact with patients than any other member of the healthcare team.

Enrollment Process

The enrollment process at Unitek College can be completed entirely online. To enroll in the Unitek College Vocational Nursing Program, a prospective student must complete the following steps:

  • Career planning session and admissions interview
  • Submit proof of high school education or equivalent

Vocational Nurse Duties and Responsibilities

LVNs assess and monitor their patients, report adverse reactions to medication or treatment, and gather information from patients including their health history and how they are currently feeling.

In some states, including California, LVNs are permitted to administer prescribed medicines, start intravenous fluids, and provide care to ventilator-dependent patients. They may use this information to complete a plan of care for a specific patient in long-term care; to complete insurance forms, pre-authorizations, and referrals; and to work with the interdisciplinary team to help determine the best course of care for a patient. LVNs often teach family members how to care for a relative or teach patients about good health habits. LVNs supervise nursing assistants and aides.
