Saving lives. Earning a competitive salary. Stable and flexible employment. Engaging with people in meaningful and rewarding ways. Sound too good to be true? It’s not. It’s called being a nurse.



Vocational nursing is a rewarding yet demanding career that requires specialized knowledge that can only be gained with the right training. Here at Career Development Institute, Inc. (CDI) we ensure our students graduate with the confidence, knowledge and skillset necessary to become successful nursing professionals.

Through our nationally accredited LVN program students develop a solid foundation and understanding of the medical industry. You’ll get to take advantage of:

  • Classroom instruction with experienced industry professionals.
  • Simulation skills lab training that goes beyond the books.
  • Hands-on clinical experience that prepares you for real-world situations

Critical course material is reviewed and revisited throughout the program, helping students fully absorb and internalize key information. Read below on what’s included with the CDI Licensed Vocational Nurse Program.

Unlike other vocational nursing schools in Los Angeles, CDI places strong emphasis on NCLEX-PN preparation. In fact, students complete a thorough NCLEX-PN review as part of the curriculum. It’s one of the several factors contributing to our nearly 100% pass rate on the NCLEX-PN for 5 years in a row.*

A licensed vocational nurse is an entry-level position into the nursing field that opens the door to a career in healthcare. Vocational nurses provide basic care working under the supervision of a registered nurse or physician.

To become a licensed vocational nurse you must successfully complete an approved training program like the one offered by CDI. Programs cover a variety of coursework including nursing fundamentals, anatomy and patient education. The training prepares you to work in many healthcare environments from hospitals to outpatient clinics.

Working as an LVN also gives you the opportunity to begin your career and gain experience while you continue to further your education. It’s like doing an LVN to RN bridge program instead of spending more time in a traditional nursing school.
