The Los Angeles County College of Nursing and Allied Health is a public community college that is owned and operated by the County of Los Angeles. The College supports the educational needs of the Los Angeles General Medical Center (LA General), Health Services, and the LA County healthcare community by providing learning-centered educational programs and career development opportunities for healthcare students.
In 1895 the College Training School for Nurses was founded under the direction of LAC Hospital and USC College of Medicine. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved the School in 1901. The School was renamed the LAC Medical Center School of Nursing in 1968 to coincide with the hospital name change to the LA General Medical Center. In 1998, the school was renamed the LAC College of Nursing and Allied Health.
The College achieves its mission by graduating 100 to 150 students with an Associate of Science degree in Nursing every year. Over 98% of these SON graduates pass their national licensing exam. Staff from Health Services receive continuing education through the Division of Allied Health Continuing Education programs.
