De Anza Nursing Students

Students entering the De Anza College Nursing Program represent a wide variety of educational, experiential and cultural backgrounds. 

  • New students may be entering Nursing training for the first time
  • Advanced students, who have come from other nursing schools, bring additional perspectives and experiences to their training
  • Licensed Vocational Nurses, with or without work experience, can expand their scope of practice in our LVN to RN Transition program

Their different ages, ambitions and goals help to weave a cultural mosaic similar to the populations they will serve. Diversity is appreciated and celebrated in our program!

We look forward to having you join us!
