Welcome to Rio Hondo College and the Division of Health Science and Nursing. This truly is an exciting time to be involved in health care. Many changes are occurring within the health care industry. Nursing, as a profession, offers a wide range of opportunities and specialties. We strive to meet the needs, aspirations, and goals of our nursing students so they can be better prepared to serve the needs of the community. The Division of Health Sciences and Nursing offers two different nursing programs, Associate Degree Nursing Program, and Vocational Nursing Program. The Division also offers three career certificates: Nursing Assistant Pre-Certification course, Acute Care CNA, and Home Health Aide. The ADN, VN, Nursing Assistant Pre-Certification(CNA), and Career Certificate courses all have exceptional pass-rates on national exams and or state certification exams.
