Healthcare Training


Song-Brown Health Care Workforce Training Act – Registered Nursing Education Program, Capitation 

In partnership with the California Healthcare Workforce Policy Commission, this grant-funded program develops courses that help nursing students pass the NCLEX (State Board Examination). 

Our strategies address academic barriers to success, and we apply best practices and successful pilot project models. 

The courses include ongoing mentoring and counseling through a successful case manager model, language, math, and study skills assessments, and workshops that align with the needs of the student to promote and foster success. 

Through the support of this grant, we support the re-entry student who has returned to school to pursue and successfully complete the Associate Degree of Nursing Program and pass the State Board Examination (NCLEX). 

Nursing and Allied Health Grant Initiatives and Project Management 

The Nursing and Allied Healthcare Grant and Project Management Department supports Long Beach City College nursing faculty and staff as they implement projects that were awarded for healthcare programs of study. 

We coordinate grant activities, grant expenditures, mandated reporting and compliance, and internal fiscal reporting with Long Beach City College departments, the Chancellor’s Office, and all partners affiliated with each grant opportunity.. 

Long Beach City College is working with educational partners, workforce investment boards and industry to address the healthcare workforce pipeline. We seek to develop a more sustainable, cost-effective strategy that strengthens the economic viability of health professions and meets the near and long term needs of California residents.

Governor’s 15% Workforce Investment Act Funds for Allied Health Programs

Long Beach City College collaborates with the Chancellor’s Office to provide academic support and implement an expanded Licensed Vocational Nursing program. This expansion will increase annual Long Beach City College enrollment by 10 students per year and will provide additional skills lab resources and clinical placements. 

The successful implementation of this partnership will provide an additional 10 LVN students to the California workforce per year.

Workforce Innovation Partnerships Grant 

Long Beach City College collaborates with the Chancellor’s Office to prepare the future workforce of California with the skills needed for emerging high skill, high opportunity industry areas. 

Our three main goals are to strengthen the Allied Health pathway and workforce pipeline; strengthen linkages with Allied Health industry partners; and build the Allied Health capacity through leveraged partnerships and sustainable programming. 

The outcome would be the successful implementation and student success through strong regional health care collaborative partnerships in the field of Allied Health/Health Information Technology.
