This program is for California CNA's who have at least five years experience and are interested in becoming license vocational nurses in California. The board of vocational nursing and psychiatric technicians has allowed CNAs, (those who preform CNA/Nursing duties or certified care assistants) the ability to sit in for the Nclex exam for LVN licensure without having the LVN required vocational training. The board does have several requirements that must be complete before A Nursing assistant can sit in for a Nclex exam, with our help you'll be sitting in the nclex exam chair in no time!
Our developer, Markita D. McGee, Lvn, created this program in 2016 to assist fellow CNA's to challenge the board as she did in 2007. She is still licensed as CNA and holds a current LVN license. About 15 years ago she herself succeeded in the process of challenging the board in California when it was almost unheard of. With her guidance and help we will assist you in doing the same.
Currently our classes are completely online. This allows flexibility for a CNA that has a very hectic schedule.
