I can't find a way to edit this post but does I found out LVN-ADN you have to have like 6 months-1year work experience. So I guess I am looking for a college that does advanced placement for the ADN program. Anyone know any?
Not every school requires work experience before being eligible to apply for their LVN-ADN programs. Of the community colleges near Anaheim (within a 30 min drive) off the top of my head, I know Cypress College, Santa Ana College, Long Beach City College, Mt SAC, and Rio Hondo have LVN-ADN programs that do not require work experience. That's already quite a few to choose from and apply to. But also keep in mind that every school has different selection criteria that may affect your decision/chances, not just work experience... For example, some are based on points, whereas others have waitlists, etc. You just have to do your research as to which fits you best.
But to cover my bases about other colleges nearby, Cerritos College and Saddleback College both require work experience. And Golden West College is currently not accepting applications for their LVN-RN program. And all the info I've given is about CCs only... I don't know much about the private schools or LVN-BSN programs since I'm not considering applying to either type and, thus, haven't done any research on them
As for seeing the counselor, most of these programs, generally speaking, want you to see a counselor for transcript evaluation to see if you meet the pre-reqs. Call the nursing departments of schools that you're interested in directly and explain your situation so they can tell you specifically what they would want you to do.
