Certified Lactation Counselors

Welcome to the CSUN and VC Collaboration

CSUN and VC are collaborating to prepare students to become eligible to sit and successfully pass the national credentialing exam for lactation counselors, the Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC).  This partnership will raise awareness among first year and second year students at VC and CSUN about the academic programs and career opportunities in the emerging field of lactation counseling.  Additionally, this collaboration will work to improve low retention and transfer rates of VC and low retention and graduation rates at CSUN among students pursuing a baccalaureate in Nutrition along with a minor in human lactation.
