School of Health Sciences

Welcome to the School of Health Sciences. Our excellent faculty and staff are committed to changing lives through providing quality education and services to prospective students interested in pursuing a rewarding career in Registered Nursing or as an Emergency Medicine Technician.

The Registered Nursing Program is fully accredited by the California State Board of Registered Nursing and is subject to its regulations regarding the education and training of nurses. Upon successful completion, you will earn an Associate of Science Degree in Nursing and qualify to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nursing (NCLEX-RN). In our program of study, you will learn the knowledge and skills to attain an entry level job in nursing. Registered nurses provide nursing care to clients and families in a variety of healthcare settings.

Students are highly encouraged to attend a Registered Nursing Information Workshop prior to seeing a counselor at the college. These workshops provide you with a basic understanding of the nursing program, and requirements for application and admission.

Our Career Mobility Program provides an opportunity for qualified licensed vocational nurses to be admitted with advanced placement into the Registered Nursing program. This program is designed to prepare competent professional nurses for service in the community.

Approved by Solano County Emergency Medical Services, the Emergency Medical Technician program focuses on the pre-hospital emergency care of ill or injured people. Successful completion of the course allows you to become certified and qualified for employment as an EMT.

Please contact us for more information regarding our programs, application procedures, and courses offered. Student success is important to us and we are committed to providing a supportive and caring learning environment that will allow you to fulfill your dream of becoming a professional nurse or EMT.
