Learn more about becoming a Licensed Vocational Nurse.  Find out more about how CDI gets you licensed and working in 13 months.  The Career Development Institute has been educating new nurses and kickstarting their exciting new careers in healthcare since 1998. We are proud of the work we do with our students and continually demonstrate our success with the professional accomplishments of our graduates. Please see some of the reasons we believe it’s time for you to discover how we became one of the top nursing schools in Los Angeles.

1. 100-Percent Pass Rate on the NCLEX-PN for 5 years in a row.

At CDI, you will enjoy supervised study in preparation for the National Council Licensure Examination for Vocational Nursing (NCLEX-PN) exam during the final section of your course. This includes hundreds of practice questions so when it comes time to take the exam, you’re confident and ready.

2. Small Class Sizes and Free Tutoring Services

We keep our class sizes small, so each incoming student gets the amount of attention he or she needs to succeed. Our instructors have decades of experience in the nursing and healthcare fields, so you’re learning from true professionals who understand the workforce. CDI also provides free tutoring services as well to help you keep pace with our challenging and exciting coursework.

3. Full Accreditation

CDI has met the tough standards of the most important nationally-recognized accreditation organizations, so your degree satisfies industry hiring standards. This includes:

  • Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools
  • Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE)
  • California Department of Public Health
  • State of California Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians (BVNPT)

4. Accelerated Program

You’ll receive your LVN nursing degree in just 13 months, which includes preparation for the NCLEX-PN exam. CDI wants you to be prepared for your brand new career as quickly as possible, so you can get the hands-on experience you need to develop your skills and progress at your new job.

5. Job Placement for all Students

We know that one of the most important issues facing our incoming students is where they work once they graduate. The job placement staff at CDI supports you to make sure that you have a job as soon as you are successfully licensed, and 85 percent of our grads are employed immediately after licensure. CDI graduates work at some of the top health centers in the area including Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Torrance Memorial Hospital, Brotman Memorial Hospital and more.
