A Message from the Dean...

Welcome to the Riverside City College School of Nursing. Our programs have an excellent reputation and have served the Riverside community for over 65 years. 

The Vocational Nursing (VN) program and Associate Degree Nursing/Registered Nurse (ADN/RN) program prepare nurses to pass their respective National Council Licensing Examinations (NCLEX). We are proud to say that our 2019 pass-rate for NCLEX exceeded 90% for ADN (RN) students and VN students, taking the examination the first time. 

In Fall 2019, the ADN program will admit the first cohort of concurrently enrolled ADN-BSN students with California State University, Fullerton. This program is the first of its kind in California. 
In Spring 2018, we also started the Nursing Assistant Training Program (NATP) to help serve the healthcare and workforce needs in the Inland Empire. We are proud to report that since the program has started, students have passed both the written and skills test with 100%. 
Nursing is a highly rewarding occupation and there is a significant need for quality nurses in the greater Riverside area. If you are interested in pursuing a career in nursing, we have Pre-Nursing Workshops ​throughout the year to provide you with additional information.
