​​About Us


Welcome to the Los Angeles Harbor College Nursing Department

The Associate Degree Registered Nursing program at Los Angeles Harbor College has been successfully educating and preparing students to become Registered Nurses since 1963. Our goal is to educate a diverse body of students to become safe, competent, and caring RNs in an environment of academic and clinical excellence and support. The nursing program has strong college and community support and National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) pass rates which exceed national benchmarks.

After the completion of prerequisite courses, the Registered Nursing program is four semesters in length. The program integrates theoretical instruction in the classroom with small group discussions and clinical experiences in hospitals, home health care agencies, and other settings in the community. Students also have opportunities to participate in simulated clinical experiences and practice clinical skills in the state-of-the-art simulation and nursing skills laboratories.

Upon successful completion of the nursing program, graduates receive an Associate of Science Degree, Professional Nursing, and are qualified to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX).
