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.

"I chose to come to Allan Hancock College because I've heard so many great things about the nursing program here. We have a really high pass rate for the state boards compared to other schools. The instructors are extremely supportive here and want us to succeed; they go out of the way to see how students learn and cater to that even outside the classroom environment."
