Student Lounge & Courtyard
The student lounge and courtyard at Career Development Institute, Inc. (CDI) offer students a relaxing hangout while on break from class or studying with classmates. Fully equipped with a refrigerator, microwave and vending machine, the student lounge serves as the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat or drink while on break. Students can also head to the courtyard, furnished with relaxing patio furniture, to enjoy the beautiful California weather or brush up for an exam.
Our student library is open during school and office hours to provide students with a quiet place to study, away from distraction. Students have access to a wide variety of reference books, study guides, flash cards and anatomical models. There is also computer access, as well as free wireless internet. Students are encouraged to use the library for individual or group study sessions.
Students experiencing academic difficulties or just looking for a little more one-on-one time can request free tutoring sessions through CDI at any point in the program. Our knowledgeable tutors tailor lessons and present course material in an engaging, easy-to-understand way that keeps students motivated and ready for the next lesson. We are here to help our students succeed– individual or group tutoring services are just one request away!
Our program places strong emphasis on the National Council Licensure Examination for Vocational Nursing® (NCLEX-PN). In the final section of the program, students are provided with an NCLEX-PN review course to prepare and empower them before taking the NCLEX-PN. During this course, students review what they have learned throughout the program by taking hundreds of practice questions modeled after the NCLEX-PN. Our strong emphasis on the NCLEX-PN training is one of the many reasons why we have a high NCLEX-PN pass rate.
