ADN Program

The College of the Redwoods' Licensed Vocational Nursing Program is approved by the California Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technician.

The program is three-semesters long allowing students to qualify for the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX-PN) for licensing as a vocational nurse. Graduates are eligible to qualify for a Certificate of Completion as LVN and or an Associate Science for LVN.

The student nurse will be evaluated on the basis of theoretical knowledge, skills and application of proficiency in clinical and laboratory settings.

Students are required to maintain a minimum ‘C’ grade in all nursing courses as well as a cumulative 2.0 GPA for all General Education requirements for the Associate Degree program

Admissions Requirements:

  1. Current enrollment form
  2. High School Diploma or GED equivalent certificate
  3. Successful completion of pre-requisite courses (with a ‘C’ course or higher from an accredited college or universities)
  4. Current California Nurse Assistant or Home Health Aid Certification

Admission selection will be based on a random lottery basis for all qualified applicants.

All successful; students will be required to submit to a criminal background check. If the student’s background check is not satisfactory health care facilities may refuse to give students access to patients or records in which case the program will not be able to provide alternate experiences.

The nursing program is a demanding program and students will find it difficult to manage more than part time employment. Clinical scheduling and lectures will not be altered due to outside work commitments.

All successful applicants will need to show proof of tetanus, varicella and rubella needs to be documented on the immunizations records of students. Hepatitis B.vaccine series and tuberculosis testing is recommended.

A current active CPR certification from the American Heart Association and American Red Cross will need to be maintained throughout the course of enrollment.
