The Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians' (Board) mission is to protect the public. Public protection is paramount to the Board and its highest priority in exercising its licensing, regulatory and disciplinary functions. Toward this end, the Board ensures that only qualified persons are licensed vocational nurses and psychiatric technicians by enforcing education requirements, standards of practice and by educating consumers of their rights.
Effective July, 2016, the Board's two funds, the Vocational Nursing Account, and the Psychiatric Technicians Account, have been combined into the Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians Fund pursuant to Chapter 510, Statutes of 2015 (AB 179, Bonilla).
