Growth in the employment of LVNs is in response to the long-term care needs of a rapidly growing elderly population and the general growth of healthcare. Replacement needs will be a major source of job openings as workers leave the occupation. Nursing homes will offer the most new jobs for LVNs as the number of aged and disabled people who need long-term care rises. Hospitals are continually under pressure to lower costs and are progressively using more LVNs in place of registered nurses. Increasingly, LVNs will also find jobs outside the traditional hospital setting as healthcare delivery changes.
In California, the number of Licensed Vocational Nurses is expected to grow faster than average growth rate for all occupations. Jobs for Licensed Vocational Nurses are expected to increase by 22.5 percent, or 14,500 jobs between 2010 and 2020.

Will I need a State License?

Students will be eligible to take the NCLEX-PN licensure examination to become licensed after completion of the CES College VN program.
