We are happy to announce that American River College will be offering the LVN-to-RN Career Mobility Program for Summer 2013!
Application to the Summer 2013 LVN-RN Career Mobility Program is now closed. Check back here next year around February 2014.
Students who are interested in the SCC LVN-to-RN Career Mobility program need to apply at SCC. Further information may be accessed at www.scc.losrios.edu.
If you have questions about prerequisites to the LVN to RN Career Mobility Program, be sure to go to the nursing home page and check out "Degrees" and "Courses". Students can also make an appointment with Robert Hartin in the Counseling Dept. by calling (916) 484-8268.
Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) accepted into the career mobility phase of the Associate Degree Nursing program are required to complete a combination of general education and nursing courses with related laboratory experience in local health agencies. Successful completion of the program qualifies the student to take the National Licensing Examination to become registered as a nurse and eligible for employment. A grade of "C" or better is required in each nursing course for progression in the program and for an Associate Degree in Nursing. There are morning, afternoon, evening, and weekend clinical experiences that may change with limited notice.
Start-up costs are approximately $2,000. The student is responsible for providing uniforms, books, laboratory fees, malpractice insurance, physical exam, immunizations, drug screen, current CPR, background check, equipment, transportation and parking to off-campus laboratory locations. Upon completion of the Nursing program, students should expect fees of approximately $450.00 to take the R.N. licensure exam. All costs/fees are subject to change.
NOTE: The California Board of Registered Nursing protects the public by screening applicants for licensure in order to identify potentially unsafe practitioners. The law provides for denial of licensure for crimes or acts which are substantially related to nursing qualifications, functions or duties. At time of licensure application, all convictions must be reported except for minor traffic violations. (Business and Professions Code 480 and Nurse Practice Act Article 3 Section 2761)
