LVN to RN Program

Attention Prosepective LVN to RN Applicants

Effective June 12, 2017, and until further notice, the Solano Community College Registered Nursing Program will suspend accepting new applications for the LVN to RN Program. See link below for additional information.

For additional information: Contact the School of Health Sciences Office at (707) 864-7108 or by email @ janet.schwartz@solano.edu.

Thank you so much for your interest in the Nursing Program at Solano Community College (SCC) and its LVN to RN Advanced Placement program.

SCC no longer has a guaranteed annual class of LVN to RN Advanced Placement students; rather, students are now admitted on a space-available basis into the Registered Nursing program. For this reason, it is very unpredictable estimating how long it may take for a space to become available for students wishing to enter the SCC Nursing Program in this way. The average rate of getting an available space in the program over the last five years has been less than 20%. Thus, the faculty, staff, and administration at SCC fear that applicants may wait for a very long time for space as a LVN to RN Advanced Placement at SCC. If you continue to wish to enter an Advanced Placement LVN to RN program, we suggest you look for a college that has a dedicated LVN to RN cohort admitted annually or semi-annually.

However, there is some positive news; we have changed our admission policy and LVNs are now able to apply directly to our generic Associates Degree in Nursing (ADN) program where the chances of actual matriculation during the first year of application are more than three times greater than the LVN to RN pathway. If you choose to apply this way you would start as a first semester nursing student with the rest of the class without any advanced placement granted. The stipulation is that you can only apply at SCC Nursing one way, either as LVN to RN Advanced Placement or as a generic student, so you would have to choose. If you choose to apply as a generic ADN student, please note that you may not request that advanced placement be granted or that you switch to the other program midway.

The generic ADN program class is drawn through a computerized lottery system. Historically, applicants have had a 65% or better chance of being accepted their first application year with the lottery, with the chances improving in succeeding application years. Also, we believe that LVNs who participate in the first semester would receive an excellent review to solidify their fundamentals going forward in the program.

Please note that the application period for the ADN generic program is September 1-30, 2018. More information about the application process and the SCC ADN program can be found on www.solano.edu, go to A-Z index and find Nursing under N.
