The LVN-RN 30-Unit Option is designed as a career ladder for California Licensed Vocational Nurses who desire to become registered nurses. Upon completion of this program, an Associates degree in Nursing and/or Bachelors of Science in Nursing degree is not granted. Completion of the 30-Unit Option only allows students to become eligible to take the NCLEX for California RN licensure.

Per the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) website, most other states do not recognize Californias LVN-RN 30 Unit Option and will not issue RN licenses to these LVNs. It is highly recommended for LVNs to consider enrolling in an ADN or BSN program in order to obtain a degree and to have the flexibility to obtain an RN license in other states. Most ADN programs will give LVNs credit for coursework completed in an LVN program.

Space Available Basis
Students in the LVN-RN 30-Unit Option are not matriculated San Diego State University students and may enroll in required coursework on a Space Available basis through Open University with the SDSU College of Extended Studies. Nursing coursework is reserved primarily for matriculated SDSU students in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.
