In order to be in alignment with recommendations and mandates set forth from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as Governor Gavin Newsom's mandate to shelter in place, the health sciences department is currently working remotely. Therefore, we appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.
Registered nursing is a dynamic career opportunity requiring high levels of knowledge, critical thinking skills and a commitment to caring for the client.
Registered nurses are in great demand and Citrus College has made a commitment to offer the associate degree in nursing program in recognition of that demand for registered nurses. The student who becomes an associate degree nurse is prepared to provide direct client care across the life span, as well as address acute and chronic health care needs and common well-defined health care problems in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and other community health agencies.
In fall 2007, Citrus College began offering an associate degree nursing (ADN-Registered Nursing) program.
