What am I doing wrong here?
Case when @Password <> '' then
	Update vUser_Info
	Set
		[USERID] = @USERID,
		[Password] = @Password,
		[FIRST_NAME] = @FIRST_NAME,
		[LAST_NAME] = @LAST_NAME,
		[EMAIL] = @EMAIL,
		[ROLEID] = @ROLEID,
		[STATUS] = @STATUS,
		[CORPORATE] = @CORPORATE
	Where [UserID] = @UserID	
	End
	
	Case when @Password = '' then
	Update vUser_Info
	Set
		[USERID] = @USERID,
		[FIRST_NAME] = @FIRST_NAME,
		[LAST_NAME] = @LAST_NAME,
		[EMAIL] = @EMAIL,
		[ROLEID] = @ROLEID,
		[STATUS] = @STATUS,
		[CORPORATE] = @CORPORATE
	Where [UserID] = @UserID	
	End

You need to use the IF statement:
IF @Password <> ''
BEGIN
	Update vUser_Info
	Set
		[USERID] = @USERID,
		[Password] = @Password,
		[FIRST_NAME] = @FIRST_NAME,
		[LAST_NAME] = @LAST_NAME,
		[EMAIL] = @EMAIL,
		[ROLEID] = @ROLEID,
		[STATUS] = @STATUS,
		[CORPORATE] = @CORPORATE
	Where [UserID] = @UserID	
END
ELSE
BEGIN
         Update vUser_Info
	Set
		[USERID] = @USERID,
		[FIRST_NAME] = @FIRST_NAME,
		[LAST_NAME] = @LAST_NAME,
		[EMAIL] = @EMAIL,
		[ROLEID] = @ROLEID,
		[STATUS] = @STATUS,
		[CORPORATE] = @CORPORATE
	Where [UserID] = @UserID	
END

It should be an IF ELSE construct instead of CASE statement.

Hope you meant @Password IS NULL and @Password IS NOT NULL
instead of @Password = '' and  @Password <> ''

If that is the case, then replace it and that will work.
Hope this helps
If @Password <> ''
begin
Update vUser_Info
Set
        [USERID] = @USERID,
        [Password] = @Password,
        [FIRST_NAME] = @FIRST_NAME,
        [LAST_NAME] = @LAST_NAME,
        [EMAIL] = @EMAIL,
        [ROLEID] = @ROLEID,
        [STATUS] = @STATUS,
        [CORPORATE] = @CORPORATE
Where [UserID] = @UserID        
End
ELSE IF @Password = ''
begin
Update vUser_Info
Set
        [USERID] = @USERID,
        [FIRST_NAME] = @FIRST_NAME,
        [LAST_NAME] = @LAST_NAME,
        [EMAIL] = @EMAIL,
        [ROLEID] = @ROLEID,
        [STATUS] = @STATUS,
        [CORPORATE] = @CORPORATE
Where [UserID] = @UserID        
End
