LVN -RN Program in Southern California

  1. Hi,

    AS many of you out there are trying to find affordable bridge programs.. Does anyone have any suggestions on ANY programs? I have gone to a private college for LVN program and spent 24k and DO NOT want to shell out 60-100k JUST for ADN.

    THANKS EVERYONE!! HAPPY NEW YEARS =)

    Not sure what area you are looking for but I can suggest checking out any of the community colleges... I am enrolled to start next month, just found out that I was accepted on Christmas Eve and can't wait to start!! I can tell you that most community colleges have a one year program (after you have completed all the pre-reqs) and mine will cost approx. $1000... Hope this helps!

    Hi,
    I went to LATTC for the Lvn program and they have a lvn-rn bridge program as well. The entire program including books should be less than 5000. They are located near the downtown L.A. vicinity.
    Good luck:spin:

    Nursgurl,
    How long did you wait to get into the program and what was your gpa? Iwent to the workshop recently and the wait-list seemed intense. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks

    Im located in Orange County, do they have online courses? How do the clinicals work? I do work a full time M-F job as an LVN

    Thank you so much!
