    This is my 1st post and sorry if I didn't use the 'search' engine yet.

    tobyboy, i can't pm yet because I am still too new to the site. However, I was accepted into LAHC. Excellent nclex pass rates of 95% average. All you need to do is take the pre-reqs, and the lvn to rn transition courses.There was no wait for us LVN's. (adn) Wilmington , Ca...close to Torrance/Harbor City area

    @caffeineaddict: congratulations on getting into LAHC! Cool, I'm an LVN too and I was wondering what my odds were of getting into an RN program. Good to know there was no wait for you!

    @tobyboy: If you're in downtown L.A., have you looked at LA Trade Tech? They have a "Career Ladder" from LVN to RN. Go to

    There's also the LA County College of Nursing and Allied Health. They are near the USC Medical Center and have "Advanced Placement" for LVNs. Click here:
