Overview

The Vocational Nursing class at Bel Air is offered as an extension of the El Paso Community College (EPCC) Nursing Class. It is a two-year, two-summer program. All Nursing classes require classroom and clinical training. Students train in long-term care facilities and local hospitals. The summer courses are taken at EPCC. The first summer students take Medication Administration and Pharmacology. The second summer they take Maternal Child and Pediatric Nursing. At the end of the junior year, students are eligible to take the State Nursing Assistant Test. After completing the second set of summer classes, students are then eligible to take state boards.
