Okay. I just was thinking if your working as a ln RN for 6 years and wouldn't take it is crazy
Yup, makes sense to all the other states that don't initially accept Excelsior grads either, but California has their own view on things.
I just find it ironic that a LVN that has been working for 20 years decides to go to Excelsior and receives their ASN can't get licensed as a RN in California, but a LVN that has been working 1 year in California can do the LVN to RN 30-unit option and be an RN in California (nothing against those that choose this option).
The even more ironic thing is that those LVN's that choose this route probably can't work in other states as an RN since they did not graduate from an accredited degree program and do not have a degree (but may be able to if they go and get a ASN/BSN).
California allows a LVN to become an RN with no clinicals other than LVN school, but does not allow a LVN that goes to an accredited school ad graduates with an ASN to become a RN because they did not do more clinicals?
