Evergreen College vs. Gavilan College - Bay Area

  1. Just wondering if anyone has looked into Evergreen yet? Wondering what the pros and cons of both are. So far Gavilan seems fine for me.

    Gavilan's program was closed back in my day. They kept talking about starting again when I went to visit them, but they didn't at the time. I heard nothing but positive comments from anybody that went to Evergreen.

    Gavilan is a minimum of 3 years...you have to get your cna cert. first, then it's 2 years for a LPN, then you have to reapply to the RN portion, which can take a year of wait, then one more year for the RN portion. At best, it will take 3 years, but it seems more likely that it will be 4- I'm not sure about evergreen, but I'd look into SJState if it is going to take 4 years anyway...

    Yea. Gavlian changed so much, especially now in my time.

    I've done my clinicals with some Gav students during the LVN rotation. IMO, I think their instructors were awesome. I'm going to apply to the LVN-RN program at both Evergreen and Gav along with some others. Good luck to all!
