Trinity School of Nursing
Trinity School of Nursing, with its main location in Ventura CA, and clinical sites in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties provides students with an exceptional learning experience that is both personalized and "beyond the basics". The mission statement "to teach you beyond basics" sets our goals high because we believe every graduate should leave here knowing how much they can accomplish outside just getting jobs right out of school!
Consistently throughout the years, QUALITY graduates come out of our program and pass the CA state competency exam. Our graduates complete their courses with newfound confidence, and skills to work in healthcare settings as nursing assistants for people who are elderly/disabled - providing them comfort when they need it most!
