The VEEB program provides an essential path for a diverse population of adult learners to become contributing members in the Countyâ€™s health care delivery system. The LPN program operates as a tuition-based school. Eligible students qualify for Federal Education Grants (PELL) and/or guaranteed or subsidized student loans. After completing the first of three semesters, students are eligible to take Nursing Assistant Exam and thus qualify for entry-level employment while completing semesters two and three of the LPN program. Many of the students who work as nursing assistants, receive reimbursement from their employers or their unions for the LPN program.
