Carrington's Practical Vocational Nursing Program

Practical Nursing / Vocational Nursing

There are multiple levels of nursing careers, but for those looking to help patients and enter the workforce quickly, vocational nursing is an option. Licensed practical nurses (LPNs), or licensed vocational nurses (LVNs) hold an entry-level nursing career that takes less time than registered nursing. In California, this career is called licensed vocational nursing. LVNs provide basic patient care under the supervision of RNs and doctors. Carrington’s Vocational Nursing program takes as few as 12 months.

Medical Assisting

Medical assistants are a vital part of any healthcare office, completing administrative and clinical tasks in the offices of physicians, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities. A medical assistant may take a patient’s vital signs, record a patient’s history and personal information, and schedule appointments. Learn more about the Medical Assisting program.

Carrington's Dental Assisting Program

Dental Assisting

Dental assistants help hygienists and dentists with routine procedures like passing instruments and sterilizing equipment, and may work to make patients more comfortable as they visit a dental office. Carrington College’s Dental Assisting program includes classes on anatomy, physiology, and radiography, dental sealants and procedures, as well as front office duties and patient care.

Dental Hygiene

During routine office visits, a patient may spend the majority of their time with a dental hygienist. Dental hygienists remove plaque and tartar, polish teeth, and help train patients on good oral health. Students in the Carrington College Dental Hygiene program gain the skills and knowledge to provide comprehensive dental hygiene care. Instruction helps students develop professional communication skills with patients, colleagues and the public, as well as knowledge of ethical standards and professional behavior.
