Learn More About Nursing:
Great nurses care for people. They inspire, motivate, have extraordinary determination and compassion, and are passionate about helping those in need. As a nurse, you will make a difference in the lives of many people. A nursing career will make a difference in your life too. Salaries are excellent, advancement and continued education is encouraged, and there are abundant employment opportunities in your neighborhood and nationwide.
Success = Great Teachers
Our faculty members have extensive experience in their areas of expertise. They are committed to student success. Nursing is a knowledge-based profession that requires lifelong professional development to transition its members from novice to expert. The ELAC Registered Nursing Program has practicing nurses from all over Los Angeles County who are instructors and advisors. These professional nurses constantly validate our curriculum to make sure it reflects current practices in nursing and health care in general.
Success = High Tech Classrooms
Major hospitals and clinics in Los Angeles County are our laboratories. Students actually provide nursing care for children and adults from all walks of life under the careful eye of clinical nurse-instructors. In addition to providing care, students teach patients how to cope with their health care issues.
Success = University Transfer
Though ELAC nursing graduates are qualified to take the California State Board Examination to become licensed as a Registered Nurse in California and enter the profession, students may elect to continue their education at a university. A baccalaureate degree prepares a Licensed RN to enter management and supervision or prepare for specialized nursing assignments.
Success = Career Connections
Nursing provides unlimited opportunities for creativity, innovation and leadership while demanding integrity, commitment and compassion. The role of a nurse is varied. You may practice as a caregiver, educator or researcher. The work is diverse, complex, demanding, challenging, and above all, very gratifying.
Success Costs Less @ ELAC
Tuition is low, less than $400 per semester for a full time student who is a California resident. Plus, we make it easier for working students to attend classes by providing support services such as loans, financial aid, childcare, tutoring, scholarships, health care and more.
Admission is Easy
Anyone 18 years or older qualifies for admission to East Los Angeles College. People under 18 qualify if they graduated from high school or have passed the California High School Proficiency test. High school students may concurrently enroll at ELAC with the consent of their parents and high school and get an early start on their college education and pay no tuition. Applications and information to register for day and evening classes are available from the Admissions Office by calling 323-265-8966.
