Advanced Placement Admissions for LVNs

Applicants who hold LVN licenses may qualify for advanced placement upon admission to our on-campus BN nursing program. LVNs may also choose an LVN 30-unit option, which meets the requirements for taking the RN licensing examination in California but does not lead to a BSN degree. LVN applicants must apply to the University during the first month of the initial filing period (November for the following fall semester and August for the following spring semester). A supplemental nursing application must be submitted by March 1 (for the fall) or by October 1 (for the spring). Special selection criteria are used to determine which students will be admitted. These criteria are available from the School of Nursing (Trinity Hall 121, 530-898-5891) and on the School of Nursing website.
