A career as a Vocational Nurse is an excellent choice for a promising future. The healthcare industry continues to grow, and nurses are in high demand all across the country. As a vocational nurse, you can provide important medical care for sick, injured, or convalescing patients. Vocational Nurses are responsible for many different tasks, including:
- Monitoring patients’ health
- Administering basic patient care
- Providing for the basic comfort of patients
- Discussing the care they are providing with patients and listen to their concerns
- Reporting patients’ status and concerns to registered nurses and doctors
- Keeping records on patients’ health
If you are interested in a hands-on medical career, in which you work directly with doctors and registered nurses to provide patients with the highest level of medical care, then a career as a Vocational Nurse may be a good choice for you! Becoming a Vocational Nurse requires you to complete a training program, such as ICH’s Vocational Nursing Diploma program, in order to learn the necessary knowledge and skills. Students interested in the Vocational Nursing diploma program are required to complete the Vocational Nursing Pre-Requisite course in advance of admissions.
If you are ready to begin your journey towards becoming a VN, the first step is to complete ICH’s VN pre-requisite (VN PRQ). In the VN PRQ, students are introduced to medication dosage calculation, medical terminology, anatomy, physiology, the interrelationships between structure and functions of human cells, tissues, and systems, and the effects of disease on body systems. Students learn critical thinking skills and basic arithmetic as well as study techniques and strategies to ensure success throughout the program.
A four week, 128 clock-hour program, the VN PRQ is an entirely online program. Through the highly flexible distance learning format, students complete their coursework online, and submit all course materials through the student portal. Students receive the benefit of dedicated, professional faculty, who work closely with their students to ensure they are supported.
