LVN 30 Unit option
As of Fall 2007, Sonoma State University Department of Nursing no longer offers an LVN-BSN Program. The state mandated "LVN-30 unit option” continues to be available at SSU.
The LVN 30 unit option at SSU and all other California State Board-approved nursing programs in California is essentially the curriculum for RN licensure. This is the same course work that is required in the LVN-ADN program at the community college level and does not achieve the BSN. It does meet the requirements for the RN licensing exam (NCLEX-RN).
Although SSU still offers the LVN-30 unit option we can only accommodate students on an "as space is available basis" (particularly clinical space). Over the past several years we have not had any such space and do not seem likely to in the near future.
