If interested in the 30 unit option, please first contact the Nursing Department Chairperson via email.
The LVN 30 unit option is available to any LVN licensed in the state of California. This one year program is for the applicant with a valid California Vocational Nurse license who wishes to quickly meet the requirements to take the NCLEX-RN as a non-graduate.
The program is prescribed by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) and provides an Registered Nursing license for California only. No degree is granted upon completion. LVNs who select this option may not change to the LVN-ADN. The student should also be aware that they may not change their status as a 30 unit option RN with the Board of Registered Nursing at any time after licensure.
