Campus Closure Notice

Due to COVID 19 pandemic, the number of students selected to enter the program in Fall 21 and Spring 22 may need to be reduced for both the RN and VN programs to meet infection control requirements.

Sacramento City College offers three programs for a career in nursing: Registered Nursing (RN), Vocational Nursing (VN), and Licensed Vocational Nursing-to-Registered Nursing (LVN-to-RN) Career Mobility.

Information Sessions

The Nursing Department will be hosting several live Q & A sessions prior to the next Nursing program application period, opening February 1, 2021. The Live Q & A sessions will serve to answer general questions about the application process.

Prior to registering for a live event, we ask that students take the time to watch the Information Session Videos. The videos have been created to provide a virtual Information Session to provide detailed information about prerequisite courses and application requirements.

Graduates of the program may go on to take the BVNPT licensure exam.
