Concord, California LPN Programs

Which Concord schools offer LVN programs?

Concord LVN Progams (campus-based programs as well as online LVN programs) are medical training programs. LVN programs are typically offered at vocational schools, technical schools, state colleges, nursing universities, online LVN programs, and other higher education institutions.

The best LPN school for you is the one that makes sense for you and serves your needs. Many two year colleges that offer associate degrees also offer LVN programs. Exact class size and clinical requirements will vary by each college offering the program.

How do I become an LVN in California?

You must complete a vocational nurse program and pass the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCLEX-PN) exam to be certified and receive your required LVN licensure.

How long will my LVN Course be?

Most LVN programs take 1 year to one and a half years complete. That's a 12 month to 18 month training program. Some nursing schools offer LVN programs which will qualify you for certification after only 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 months of class.

Do I need to complete an LVN program before I go to college to get an RN Degree?

No. Completing LVN training is not necessary before you can get your RN license. An accredited RN degree can be completed in as little as two years.

What are typical LVN Pre-Reqs?

As all schools have different academic requirements to get accepted into their LVN program, California LVN schools are no exception. You can expect an entrance exam or at least a prerequisite check when you submit your application to determine your eligibility. There may be additional academic requirements also.

At the very least, most schools require applicants to have a High school diploma / GED. You also must get accepted to the college that you are applying to.

Financial aid, including nursing scholarships or federal grant money, may be available to you as a new students enrolling in Concord LVN classes. For more information, check with the Admissions office at the program you are applying to.

Are CNA to LVN Programs Available?
