Do you want a career that involves caring for, supporting and helping people who are sick or injured? Do you enjoy educating people and being an advocate for health? Becoming a registered nurse has many rewards and career opportunities are plentiful. Allan Hancock College offers an associate in science degree and certificate option for LVNs to become registered nurses (RNs).

The registered nursing (RN) program, fully accredited by the California Board of Registered Nursing, is a two-semester program offered every year starting in the spring semester. The program includes both classroom study and supervised clinical practice. Clinical practice takes place in our labs, local hospitals and medical care facilities.

California licensed vocational nurses (LVN) and graduates from accredited vocational nursing programs are eligible to apply upon completion of Allan Hancock College program prerequisites. The LVN-to-RN program is specifically designed to provide the LVN with an opportunity for career advancement and prepares the LVN for the additional responsibilities required of the registered nurse. If accepted into the program, you must comply with background checks and drug screening required by clinical agencies.

In addition, the program has a 30-unit certificate option, completion of which qualifies the successful graduate to take the RN licensing examination. If you choose to pursue the 30-unit certificate option you would NOT be a graduate of the Allan Hancock Nursing Program or of the college. Applicants to this curriculum alternative must meet with the Associate Degree of Nursing program director for advisement.
