LVN to ADN Career Ladder Admission Requirements

Application Period: Yuba College is accepting LVN to RN applications June 1st through September 20, 2017, 1PM.   Applicants will be contacted via email regarding application status, typically, by November 1st for spring applicants and May 1st for fall applicants. 

NEW: Applicants are now required to submit lab reports of titers for HEP B, Varicella and MMR prior to start of semester.

Admission Criteria:

Yuba College Nursing utilizes the California Community College Chancellor's Office Admission Formula to evaluate all LVN to ADN Career Ladder applicants.

This formula is calculated based upon a combination of the following factors:

         1.     Cumulative college GPA

         2.     English 1A (or equivalent) course GPA (≥2.50 required)

3.     Core Science (Anatomy, Physiology, & Microbiology)

        GPA (cumulative ≥2.50 required), and

4.     Total number of repeats (W, D, or F grades) in core

        science courses (lowers the admission score)

This calculation results in a probability percentage. The higher the percentage, the more likely the student is to complete the program successfully.  Applicants must score ≥47% to qualify for admission to the LVN to ADN Career Ladder program.

Prerequisite Coursework:

NURS 26 (Pharmacology) is not a required prerequisite course for the LVN to ADN Career Ladder program. Course grades must be posted and all official transcripts must be on file with Admission & Records.

Licensing Verification:

Applicants must submit a copy of  valid California LVN and IV certification with application.

Qualified Applicants:

TEAS results must be submitted with the application. Passing scores ≥62% for the TEAS and may be taken multiple times with highest course accepted.

Qualified applicants will then be invited to take pre-admission exams.  Admission is on a space available basis to the third semester of the ADN program. If there is no space available for students, student must re-apply for the following semester.
