Hi all. Recently brightwood college and all other colleges under ECA are shut down abruptly. I was on my last term 2 months away from finishing the lvn program. Now Bvnpt are offering us to submit an application to challenge the board via method 3 equivalency. And also also been a cna (med-surg) for more than 4 years, so getting approved is very likely. Is anyone here took the method 3 route? if so, How long is the process before you get approved? is there any RN school that will accept the method 3 status to their program? is there any restriction for LVN scope of pratice for this type of license? or do you guys have any advice or better solution for my current situation? Thank you. Happy holiday to you all.

The only drawback to that route is that the resulting LVN license is not recognized outside of CA. No restrictions to the scope of practice in CA. Your license (they no longer provide pocket license cards) does not even make mention of the method. If the BVNPT is making the offer, I would take them up on it, but I don't see how anyone who does not already have an extensive background in healthcare could meet the requirements. Go to the website and check the requirements to see what you are dealing with.

Thanks for the response. Do you have any idea how long is the wait for processing after submitting all the requirements? someone said 16 weeks, their website said 26 weeks and one of their representative said could be up to 11 months?
