LVN/Paramedic to RN Career Mobility
We are currently exploring the possibility of bringing this program to the Del Norte campus. We do not have a start date at this time, as again, we are still in the planning phase. Please watch this site for further announcements and information.
LVN/Paramedic to RN Career Mobility Associate Degree Program: The LVN to RN Career Mobility ADN program is a 3-semester program to assist the Licensed Vocational Nurse or Paramedic in becoming a Registered Nurse. Program content includes nursing courses and additional coursework in physiology, chemistry, microbiology, communication skills, social and behavioral sciences, and Associate of Science degree requirements.
LVN to RN 30 Unit Option : The LVN to RN 30 Unit Option program is a 3-semester program to assist the Licensed Vocational Nurse in becoming a Registered Nurse. This option is legal only in the state of California, only, with no reciprocity in other states within the U.S. Program content includes mental health and psychiatric nursing, advanced medical-surgical nursing, geriatric nursing, principles and practices of IV therapy, management of patient care and leadership skills, and bioethics.
CLINICAL REQUIREMENT UPDATE, BOTH OPTIONS: A 10-panel urine drug screen is required 30 days before the beginning of your first clinical rotations and every Fall following a summer break. Positive results mean you cannot attend clinical per clinical agency contract. Inability to attend clinical will result in being dismissed from the course.
