Indiana state University has an online LVN to RN program that's accredited in Ca. The University sets up your clinicals where you live.

I just started an LVN program in La Puente, its a year long. After I complete that I have the option of the ladder program to become an RN. There are many hospitals that have programs where you can sign a 2 year contract with them to work as an lvn and they will have the program at their hospital for the RN a year long. Some you pay some you do not. There are only a couple of pre reqs after LVN i do beleive, if any.

ALSO. the private schools are at least 25K for LVN and the school in La Puente is 4500 total. You just need to pass high on the basic assessment testing to get in. You do not have a bill for years to come because you pay as you go.

Check the adult schools. The school that i am attending is Hacienda La Puente Adult School. If they have it there I am sure they should have that program at other Adult schools. Its public and not private.

Try (800)39-learn, www.college-net.com. They came to our school to recruit us after we are done with the LVN course. It may be expensive though. Indiana State University (The college network). Good luck.

I also suggest going to your local Junior college and seeing a counselor so they can direct you regarding what you need to become an RN. If you want the LVN-RN or just to get into the RN program. Its too confusing and is much better to get a free counselor to help you out.

I am not sure if you will be able to locate an on-line LVN course. I have been searching for all available LVN courses in the state of California for the past year and a half...and what I have found in my research are LVN courses held at private schools (which are truly a rip off!), junior colleges, adult schools, and ROPs (which are the better choices in regards to cost).

Please help? What are your findings for private schools in CA? Are they online. Right now I am willing to pay anything to try and get an LVN online. I understand I have to do clinicals elsewhere.

thanks everyone... i have been waiting for almost 2 years to get into an RN program here in fresno. i'm done with all my AA requirements all i need is the program but then it's just so hard to get into. i'm probably going to try to do the lvn program and then move my way up eventually to a practitioner. thanks to all. i live in fresno but then if there is a lvn program that is a year only then i'd be willing to relocate. anywhere close to santa ana would be nice. if you know of any please let me know. if there are any RN programs available it would be even better.

Check out North Orange County ROP in Anaheim. Here is the website: www.nocrop.tec.ca.us/
High school and adult students. 13-month Vocational Nursing Program. Full time program Monday through Friday. This ROP LVN program is based on the point system. You need 75 points along with passing the exam (the cost for the exam is $10.00)to be awarded an interview. The points are accumulated by taking health courses with clinical component (which can be taken at the ROP), college courses (anatomy, physiology, microbiology,chemistry, pathophysiology), as well as accumulated college units. Points are also given if you have health work related experience. For more information, VN information meetings may be heard on a recorded message at (714) 502-5957 for upcoming LVN class.
Please note, this is a good time to get started because by 2010, the adult population attempting to get into a LVN program through a ROP will begin to accept only
5 to 10 perecent of adults thanks to your governor!

Here is a link to most of the Adult School in California. You will have to go each link to find out if they have an LVN program.

The only way from my understanding to take on-line RN courses, you'll have to already be a LVN, and no, I haven't found on-line LVN course because I don't think they exist. There is no other way!!! Sorry.

When selecting a LVN program...please make sure you check their passing rate. Especially, if you are think about a private school because most of their passing rates are pretty low.

I agree. If you have to work, try to work at night or weekends so you can take the year long LVN course then you can apply for an RN online course. Good Luck!

To JoJo in La Mirada...regarding the LVN program in La Puente...the entrance exam, was it a basic test or do you really need to brush up on lost skills?

jojo in La Mirada, California

Hello, its basic math to pre-algebra, reading and comp, and a test that is kind of like the IQ test, spelling, acronyms/synonyms. Its about 4 hours long and they hold it once a week. The next class starts in January, the PRE VN is in I think Aug. You have to score very high because they have hundreds of people taking the test, then they send about 100 letters out for the PRE VN of those who scored the highest, out of the 100 only 30 get selected twice a year. I would suggest brushing up. You want to get 12th grade and higher on your scores. Most people get 10th grade level believe it or not. Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions. I would go and take the test now so you can be at the top of the list for high scoring.

Thank you for the information.:-D
Are you able to take the test more than once per LVN extrance date? At Baldview ROP, you are only allowed to take the test once per LVN start date. Also, I noticed on the La Puente website, they have a lab which allows one to brush up on english and math skills. Do you know of anyone who utilized the lab to brush up on their skills, and was it helpful?

You can take the test over and over and they will take the higher scores and replace them with the lower. Yes they do have a lab to help you. I think its a great opp! Its cheap and the passing rate is high.

West Coast University in Anaheim offeres and LVN-RN bridge program. Some of the ADN courses are offered online and the others on campus. It is not cheap but it will get you done. I am in my 30th wk of the 80 wk program. If you have some of the courses required you get credited for those. They also have a Los Angeles campus. Good luck

Hi Deedee,
I went to an info session @ the WCU Los Angeles campus & yes, it's very very expensive but they made it seem as if I wouldn't be able to get credit for too much & the tuition wouldn't decrease considerably. I've completed most of my pre-reqs but want to be on a 3 yr waiting list for a traditional program.
How's it working for, would you really recommend it?

I graduated from Stanbridge. It is accredited. There was alot of drama at that school. If you go, do your work, play by the rules, don't be absent or tardy. I hear that other lvn school in SO-Cal are drama based. The staff at Stanbridge went through so much changes, they are alittle more organized now. Good luck.
