The LVN-RN Advanced Placement Program has transitioned to a multi-criteria selection process. In order to address our current waitlist, we will not be accepting new applications for the Fall 2020 cohort. Check back periodically for updates to dates when we begin accepting new applications.
For complete program information, refer to the Bakersfield College LVN-ADN Program brochure.
NOTE: We are not currently accepting applications to our LVN-RN program as we are transitioning to new selection criteria and must exhaust the current waitlist prior to accepting new applications.
The Nursing/Allied Health office must receive all application forms and transcripts during the above filing period (see Application Procedures below). Forms received prior to or after the application period will not be accepted.
It is the student’s responsibility to do the following procedures listed below:
*Note: Students who cannot demonstrate completion of all Board of Registered Nursing requirements for licensure will be required to demonstrate competency through written examinations and skills testing.
If you have taken courses from any college other than Bakersfield College:
Note – transcript evaluations can take up to twenty four (24) weeks and must be completed prior to the end of the application period. For the December application period your transcripts should be submitted no later than November 1st.
*For complete program information, refer to the Bakersfield College LVN-ADN Program brochure.
In the event the number of qualified students for the ADN Program exceeds space available, the following selection process is utilized. Students who are qualified for enrollment enter in the order in which their names appear on the Program Waiting List. The student’s position on this list is determined by random drawing of names by the Director, Assistant Director, and one assistant. If the program is receiving Workforce Investment Act (WIA) funding, in accordance with the Jobs for Veterans Act (JVA), priority will be given to applicants with proof of military service and discharge under conditions other than dishonorable. An eligible spouse or widow(er) will also be extended this priority status. To remain current on the waiting list, enrollment forms must be submitted each semester until Program is entered.
NOTE: We are not currently accepting new applications to our LVN-RN program.
