Hello,

I was about to go directly into RN but I decided to do LVN first. My reasons: I have to work, I need a steady income. I've been a CNA since 2007 with a lot of experience. I live in Southern Ca. What schools do you all recommend? I do not want to go to another private school, I already did that and I owe tons of money on school loans. Any suggestions, advise or thoughts are appreciated. Thank You

Did you check the BVNPT website? It gives you all the accredited schools in CA. I too am in SoCal, and I will be starting an LVN program the beginning of next month. I have all my prerequisites for ADN, but chose to enter an LVN. Long story short, I went to Hacienda-La Puente adult for LVN and would recommend. It offers an surprising affordable price, I believe $7500. There are other programs, Lakewood, Downey. You can find them on the board website.

Thank you for replying. I was actually looking into Hacienda La Puente. I'm going to contact them and look more into the classes. I currently work full time so unsure if these are during the day.

Have you considered this:

This is one way to get your LVN: using the equivalency method. This method allows you to practice only in California (bear in mind that some places may over look you as they will consider those who have been to an accredited institution).
