Lvn-rn 30 unit option CA

  1. 0
    Hey all I am an Lvn in California starting a bridge program where I have decided to do the 30 unit option and was curious if here was anyone out there doing the same or that had any additional input. By doing this route I'm saving about13k that I can put towards my bachelors and also saving time too

    Just be careful about one thing with your 30 unit option upgrade... it may initially limit your ability to work outside of California. Once you get your BSN, that may change. While all RN programs are required to have this option in California, some may offer a bridge course that results in a degree, typically an ADN type degree. The program I'm attending does a bridge program instead of the 30 unit upgrade. Those LVN's that pass the "bridge" course then get to start the 2nd year of the regular nursing program. Those grads get the same degree as the "regular" program students. It might be worth checking into!

    Hi akulahawk! What school do you attend? I'm interested in a Lvn to Rn bridge in California.

    I attend Sacramento City College. They're not the only program in the Sacramento region that does a career mobility program that results in an ADN being awarded to LVN's that choose this route. That other program is at American River College.

    Oh okay. I'm actually in Los Angeles and looking for a program out here. Hope it's going well for you.
