LVN to BSN Program

Our LVN to BSN program is designed for students who meet the program's minimum eligibility requirements and who have a valid California LVN license and want to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.  Effective with entry to this program in Fall 2012, students who have already completed a Bachelor's Degree in another discipline may also apply for entry to this nursing program.

We admit up to four LVN to BSN students each fall.  These students  join a cohort of Traditional BSN Students, admitted in the same term. Therefore, the School of Nursing has recently changed our entrance requirements for our LVN to BSN program to be more consistent with the entrance requirements of our Traditional students.  

The LVN-BSN application period opens in the fall, Oct. 1 through  Nov. 30, for admission to this program .  The Fall application and application instructions are posted on our Nursing Web site under the Fall 2014 Applications link. Please visit the links, below, to learn about the program eligibility changes prior to actually completing the online application.
