There are a few private schools for LVN in the east bay. Unitek and NCP are the ones I know to be good. They are 10 months long (Unitek), and 11 or 16 momths long (NCP). However, they are very expensive (27,000 to 30,000). The good thing is that they dont have a waitting list like they do at community colleges and you get in and out faster.
