Welcome to the Health Occupations, Public Safety, & Family Studies Division. The Health Occupations, Public Safety, & Family Studies Division offers the opportunity to embark on careers that are challenging, exciting, and highly satisfying.

We conduct a highly respected two-year associate degree program in Registered Nursing, a career mobility program for licensed Vocational Nurses, an excellent Emergency Medical Technician program, and courses in medical terminology, pharmacology for health professionals, emergency room, critical care and coronary care nursing. As a student in the associate degree Registered Nursing program, you will learn to apply skills in communication, critical thinking, patient assessment and intervention in a variety of clinical settings.

Our instructors are active practitioners with extensive clinical expertise, and they are committed to providing the best possible learning experiences for our students.

We are an approved CEU Provider and fully accredited by the California Board of Registered Nursing.

The Emergency Technician certificate program teaches students to perform patient assessment and treatment skills in pre-hospital, emergency situations involving illness or injury.

The Criminal Justice Program offers core and selective courses which provide the student with a base of knowledge and proficiencies in the area of corrections. The program operates with the cooperation and participation of local corrections agencies. All instructors in the program have experience in the corrections field. Courses are scheduled day, evening, and online to accommodate full-time or part-time students seeking to acquire upgrade skills in the correction field.

The Early Childhood Education Program prepares students to meet the new and stringent demands of today’s child care centers, preschool programs, and nursery schools. It offers a comprehensive study of the development of the young child as well as opportunities to learn techniques to enhance the emotional, physical, social, and cognitive needs of the child.

The Fire Technology program was established under direction of Solano County fire protection agencies and offers both an intensive training course culminating in a Certificate of Achievement and a well-rounded educational program leading to the Associate in Science Degree. Instructors in this program are experienced members of the fire service field. In addition, a Fire Technology Academy for recently recruited fire service personnel and pre-service students is conducted periodically. The curriculum consists of courses selected from the regular fire technology course offerings.
