NURSING is defined by the American Nurses' Association as 'the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations'. The IVC Nursing Program prepares both men and women for licensure to practice as a professional nurse. The program is open to students who are in good health, 18 years of age and older, and have successfully met the admission criteria. The RN Program is a full-time, 2-year program, and after successful completion, students are eligible for the Associate of Science degree in Registered Nursing from IVC and the national licensure examination called the NCLEX RN. Application periods are in March (1-31) and September (1-30) of each year. Nursing Classes are scheduled throughout the week and in the evening depending on the level of the student. The IVC ADRN Program is fully accredited by the California Board of Registered Nursing.
