    LVN Program

    Through a combination of classroom instruction, simulation skills lab training and hands-on clinical experience in Los Angeles, LVN students develop a solid foundation and understanding of the medical industry. Critical nursing course material is reviewed and revisited throughout the LVN program, helping students fully absorb and internalize key information.

    Just to clarify, a licensed practical nurse (LPN) in much of the United States is a nurse who cares for people who are sick, injured, convalescent, or disabled. LPNs work under the direction of registered nurses or physicians. In the United States however, California and Texas refers to a licensed practical nurse (LPN) as a licensed vocational nurse (LVN). It can get a little confusing when choosing the right career path, but just know a lpn is the same as Licensed Vocational Nurse.

I think I had a great time there, it was hard times too but I think CDI, everything was good about it, from studying, from taking tests, from being with the students. I just felt really at home. Everything was perfect there, from the bottom of my heart it was like a family there."

    "If you commit yourself and you really follow everything the instructors say, you can pass. You can definitely do it because I have four kids and a husband and I did it, so they can do it."

    Stephanie J., LVN

    "I had been working in the medical field for more than 20 years while putting my sons through college. Once they finished their education, it was time to turn the attention back on me and do what I wanted to do. That was nursing."

    Angela L.,

    "I did my research because I wanted the education I deserve. A quality education is very important to me because I’m investing my time and my money. When I began researching, I looked at the schools with the highest NCLEX-PN passing rates because that was very important for my decision. I narrowed the list and did my homework. That’s when I found CDI."
