Which Gilroy schools offer LVN programs?


Gilroy LVN Programs (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 LVN school for you is the one that prepares you for success as a nurse. 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 practical nursing 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?
