School of Nursing - CSU, Chico

The LVN-to-BSN Program has been suspended.

The School of Nursing has suspended admissions to the LVN to BSN program, effective Fall, 2011. 

This difficult decision was necessitated by state budget cuts, the end of grant support, and the demand the program places on clinical sites and need for additional faculty.  We know this program fills a real need for working LVNs to continue their education. For now, we recommend that you look at LVN to RN programs in the community colleges in your area. Private colleges also offer an LVN to BSN.

Once you are an RN, Chico will continue to offer online options for RN-to-BSN and for the master's degree. 

If the LVN-to-BSN program becomes available again, applicants who hold LVN licenses may qualify.
