    As i read on i feel more and more discouraged that i'll find a school here. Now i really am considering just challenging the LVN exam, then enrolling in an LVN to RN program :/
    Start looking now, there's a 2-3 year plus waiting list and that's among the regular CA students. But there are some schools that do it by lottery now, but one must still pass certain requirements to be considered to be placed on the list.

    Some require high to very high GPA's or high pre-testing scores, brush up on basic math and English skills.

    Hang in there!

    Hi Belagee12, are you from batch 2012 too? So am I, though my school has yet to send the application. The concurrency issue definitely is discouraging. Would it be okay to get your email? You live in NorCal, maybe we can exchange school information in case. Haha.
    Wait, what? If you're from the 2012 batch, it was thought by other posters here, that the CHED has already adjusted the curriculums to meet the CA BON requirements?

    The other posters of 2012 just recently applied into CA, but still awaiting for their answers, hope it's a better news.

    Subject-wise yes, but the cases, I don't think so. Though the cases have been shortened to just 3, being able to complete them within the time period of the subject was not implemented, at least in some schools.

    You are not challenging the exam but applying to meet requirements to be a licensed LVN in CA. Plenty of threads discussing the process but also check out the BVNPT website (links can be found at the bottom of the page)
