The Step-Up LVN to ADN Program provides basic education and experience in Nursing which will qualify the graduate for an entry-level Registered Nurse (RN) position. 

California Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN'S) are eligible to apply for a one-year transition program known as the Step-Up LVN to ADN Program. The program is three semesters in total (spring-fall-spring). Students start the Step-Up Program in March and take a transition course before joining the ADN class in the third semester of the program (fall semester). Credit toward first-year ADN courses is granted upon evidence of LVN licensure. 

 In 2021, the Step-Up LVN to ADN Program changed the program start date to spring. In previous years, the program began in the summer.
