About our programs

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.

You can be job-ready after three months with our Nursing Assistant and Phlebotomy programs, or by combining both to be ready to work as an Emergency Room Technician. We also offer a Practical Nursing Associates of Applied Science for both traditional students and Licensed Medical Assistants that prepares students for state licensing and qualify to work as an LPN. The Practical Nursing Program is offered in both full-time and part-time/hybrid formats. For licensed LPNs we offer a two-year LPN to BSN program.

Students who plan to go straight to their Bachelors of Science in Nursing at a university, rather than pursue LPN first, should review our Pre-Nursing Transfer degree.
