    What are the days/times for the Pre-Requisites and the actual Core program? I'm a few weeks away from graduating from Unitek's LVN program, and want to start a RN program right away.

    You have to have all of your prerequisites done or you have to do their VND program which is vocational nursing degree and its 16 months long and about $30,000. I'm not sure if they have changed the requirements yet, but they were going to make it so you had to work as a lvn for 6 months prior.

    I just went in to their "RN Information Session". $23,000 for all pre-requisites. Science classes held Wednesdays either 3:30-6:30 or 6:30-9:30. The other classes are online. You are limited to 7 units per term. 4 16 week terms to complete all pre-requisites. Which gives you the VN Degree. Next, the RN program itself is $36,000. RN program is 8-5, M-F. 2 16 week terms.
    If you have GE classes done, they subtract roughly $400/unit for non-science classes; $800/unit for science classes.
    Carrington College California -- Sacramento.
    As of 5/29/2013 Information RN Session.

    Hi, I'm thinking of applying at Carrington college. One rep said that Its better for me to finish all the prereqs then apply for LVN to RN. Is there a waiting list? Do they accept you right away if you have 3.0 GPA? Do I wait for decision letter if I'm accepted or not?
