Program Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of this program, students will be able to demonstrate the cognitive skills necessary to integrate the nursing concepts learned in a two year ADN program, including clinical evidence-based concepts inherent in entry level registered nursing practice; demonstrate cognitive skills necessary to integrate the nursing concepts learned in the first year of the ADN program; and demonstrate the psychomotor skills necessary to integrate the nursing concepts learned in a two year ADN program, including clinical evidence-based concepts inherent in entry level registered nursing practice. Glendale College offers programs leading to a certificate or degree in Registered Nursing (RN). The program of study of the Department of Nursing is approved by the Califonia Board of Registered Nursing (BRN).
This advanced placement option LVN-RN provides access to the RN curriculum for the applicant who is an LVN with an active and in good standing license in California. This option qualifies the student to meet the Board of Registered Nursing requirements for eligibility to apply for the California RN licensing examination (NCLEX-RN). Upon completion the student receives a certificate of completion but is not considered a graduate of Glendale College or the Department of Nursing. A license obtained through this program may not qualify the graduate for licensure by endorsement in other states. A current California LVN license and prerequisite courses are required in order to apply. Upon acceptance, the student will then enter the program. See the nursing counselor for detailed program requirements.
