SJVC Visalia LVN to RN Program

  1. Hi all,

    Just thought I would start a thread to see who applied for the upcoming 2018 cohort. I also wanted to check in and see how your experience has been so far through the application process. As for me, so far, I think I'm doing really well! I scored a level 2 on the RN fundamentals exam, had a great interview, and now I'm locked in with my finances. Just waiting for the phone call from SJVC to tell me if I've been accepted or not.

    I believe there are only 24 seats for the bridge program and over 100 applicants. It's more competitive than I thought, especially because it's a private college.

    We're supposed to hear by October 15th. Good luck to everyone!!

    I have applied, waiting to hear back on my transcripts. How long was the interview portion? I am nervous and excited. I did not realize it was so competitive.
    Good luck!

    That’s awesome! So far, so good on the application process! I’m soooo excited. I turned in my transcripts in mid-July and heard back the following week. After that, the process has been quick, which I like! I had no idea it was that competitive also. People from all over California are applying here.

    The interview portion- I was nervous, but excited at the same time. They ask you to come 30 min early because they ask you to write an essay on-site. For my interview, they basically asked me about my experience, what I’ve heard about the school and why I wanna go there, how I studied for the fundamentals exam they held, and what kind of things I’ve done as a LVN. Pretty simple questions. It was a good 20-25 min. My advice: Make eye contact, smile, and let them know how hungry you are for this. Good luck!

    A friend of mine told me she reached out to the admissions rep and SJVC letters won't be going out until around the third week of October...

    I had a 78.3%, which got me a Level 3! How'd you do? You can see the level on the ATI website.

    No not yet. I've been waiting everyday to hear from them. But if their still interviewing other applicants then I wonder when will they be informing us.
