Sacramento Carrington RN 2020

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone has applied for Carrington LVN-RN program for August 2020 and will like to see if they are also waiting to see if they got accepted? It's so nerve-wreking as it's the only college I applied so far. I'm also looking into PUC in Napa as well. What other colleges have you guys applied to as well that also accepts Carrington's credits? Hope to talk to some people that is in the same boat with me.

Hey! Im finishing my pre-reqs in 5 weeks, and applying to the program that starts in December. How was the application process? and PUC accepts Carrington credits?

@MorganD hi there, the application process was a lot to take in. It took me a whole month just to get everything together so allow yourself at least 2-4 weeks to actually get everything together or you will be very late to submitting your application. It was very hard for this time around because of COVID, the school was closed and everything was explained through the phone. I messed up three times and got an earful from Toni LOL. Was my fault tho anyways. The application consists of background/drug screen which was $135 and three work vertifications that you have to get it signed off, TEAS scores, physical check, immunization/blood titer results, and many more LOL

Make sure to do very well in your classes as you have more chances to get in if you have a very high GPA.

Hi thank you for responding! and great info I really appreciate it. Right now I have 3.6 do you think that is competitive?

Is the lvn to RN in Sacramento a certificate of 30hra program or an actual Associates? 
 

long term I would like to get a BSN not sure if I can with a certificate.

How long did it take to hear if you were excepted or not into Carrington’s LVN-RN bridge program? I’m trying to figure out how much notice I can give my job, I don’t want to wait last minute to put in my 2 weeks but I’m feeling that I won’t heR anything about my application til right before the program starts.

@Jennifer Goodpasture hello. They will let you know at least 3-4 weeks ahead. The next program starts in April and they will call you to let you know if you made it in or didn’t. Please give them time as well because the Director told us last week that there were over 200 applicants so they’re doing their best to see who are the best candidates among those 200. There’s only 24-26 spot available only. It’s a very competitive program so as long as you have 3.7 GPA OR HIGHER, good TEAS score (75 or higher), and at least 1-2 years experience as a LVN, you will be a highly favorable candidate. I hope I was able to answer your questions and good luck!🍀

hello. It’s an associates degree program and I called WGU and they accept carrington credits! Most online school accepts the associates program from Carrington.

@Embie0410 Thanks so much! I know there is a ton of applicants and was curious to a time frame to expect an answer. I was supposed to apply for the December start date but due to covid my VND group was not allowed to apply and had to wait for this April start date. My GPA is 3.67 and my tease was a 70%, just below what is the favorable acceptance but I do have over 2 years experience at one job and have been licensed for 5. I hope I made the cut but I know there are a lot of applicants who have better GPA’s and test scores than I.
