Two-year Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees also are available in Drug and Alcohol Abuse Counseling, Surgical Technology, and Upward Mobility Nursing (RN).

The Vocational Nursing Program provides instruction in courses that prepare graduates for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN/VN) to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN).
The courses in the VN Program give students the opportunity to acquire the skills and demeanor necessary to provide nursing care to clients in structured health care settings. The vocational nurse functions under the supervision of a registered nurse and/or licensed physician. The VN Program provides students with the background necessary to enable them to succeed in the workforce or to seek additional nursing education.
