Demand for highly qualified health care workers continues to grow within our region, state, nation, and world. Green River College nursing programs offer a wide variety of health career training opportunities. Our nursing programs provide a comprehensive curriculum that includes study in theory and practical experience.

In much of the United States and most Canadian provinces a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) cares for people who are sick, injured, convalescent, or disabled under the direction of registered nurses and physicians. Duties include coordinating and implementing nursing care as well as supervising nurse assistants.

Nursing Assistants support the nursing staff in hospitals and long-term care facilities by assisting patients with basic needs, such as feeding, moving and bathing. In many settings, nursing assistants are the health professionals whom patients encounter most often. As our population ages, the demand for Nursing Assistants will increase dramatically. Start now and get a head start in an expanding industry.

Phlebotomists are people trained to draw blood from a patient for clinical or medical testing, transfusions, donations, or research. Phlebotomists collect blood primarily by performing venipunctures, (or, for collection of minute quantities of blood, fingersticks).
Eligibility to participate in our programs is contingent on passing a background check. See criteria for crimes that would prevent licensure or certification (RCW 43.43.830 and RCW 43.43.842).
