CNA to LVN

The “equivalency method”, also known as the "experience method", as outlined by the BVNPT, (California State Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians), permits licensed Certified Nursing Assistants who have had extensive bedside nursing care experience, plus a limited amount of formal education, to demonstrate that they have acquired sufficient basic nursing knowledge and skills to be eligible for the NCLEX-PN licensure examination.

Our focus is in the Medical field. California Preparatory College however is not an LVN school. We provide certified nursing assistants with the required 54-hour pharmacology class for those who wish to utilize their experience in accordance with the BVNPT Rules and Regulations. The 54-hour pharmacology class is only one requirement set forth by the BVNPT. The following link will direct you to the the BVNPT site.
