The Nursing program at College of the Redwoods offers both an Associate of Science and a certificate in Licensed Vocational Nursing (LVN). Programs in this field provide educational opportunities for students seeking careers as Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN). Upon completion of the appropriate program, students are eligible to take the National Council Licensing Exam for Practical Nursing (NCLEX-PN). Students who have completed this program and have California Recognition of Licensure as a Vocational Nurse may find employment as LVNs or may apply to the LVN-RN program.
