Completed all prerequisites for the Register Nurse nursing program. However, I am seeking to attend a out of state community college or private with clinical in California. If you know of any accredited schools please list below. Thank you

Unless something has changed in the last few years, California does not allow out of state schools provide clinicals in California. Indiana State Univ. has an online LPN-BSN program. Nine years ago, they were within weeks of renewing their contract to provide clinicals through Sonoma State and the CSU chancellor cancelled the contract because ISU was taking spots away from California students even though the ISU students were California residents. ISU ended up finding clinical instructors through the VA which circumvents the California BRN to allows those students in the program to complete their degree. As far as I know there isn't any out of state schools that are allowed to provide clinicals in California.
