The mission of the Porterville College LVN to RN 30-Unit Option Certificate is to prepare entry level registered nurses as providers and managers of care across the health/illness continuum and as members within the profession. Entry-level registered nurses will collaborate with members of the health care team, be effective communicators, be politically aware, and demonstrate a commitment to lifelong learning. The 30-unit option provides the Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) the opportunity to prepare and sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). This option is available to all LVN’s entering the PC Nursing Program. This is a two-semester Program. Students do not need to complete all the Porterville College General Education Requirements for the LVN RN 30-Unit Certificate of Achievement. This option does not lead to an Associate Degree in Nursing.
