The demand for healthcare workers has prompted both the government and private sector to create educational options that qualify aspiring nurses more quickly than the traditional full-term nursing programs.

As a result, an increasing number of prospective nurses are signing up for short-term courses. A certified nursing assistant (CNA) program can be completed in two months, a licensed practical nurse (LPN) program takes 12-18 months, and an associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) program takes just two years to complete. These courses can all be pursued in various vocational, career, and community colleges. Vocational schools provide aspiring nurses the education and skills to find gainful employment in healthcare and medical facilities experiencing a shortage of nursing personnel.

Short-term courses, like a CNA program, are often provided by private career education centers, while many community colleges offer LPN and ADN programs. For reference, these community colleges are often referred to as junior colleges, technical colleges, city colleges, or two-year colleges, primarily because they are meant to offer two-year courses. Some community colleges have expanded their course offerings to include shorter courses like CNA programs.

In this age of increasingly complex educational options, the following list of vocational, career, and community colleges for nursing in Idaho should provide clarity for aspiring nurses.
