Students with previous nursing education who have been enrolled in a class will be given the opportunity to receive units and credit toward completion of the A.S. degree program by challenge in theory and clinical performance (this is only after being enrolled in the class). 

LVNs may elect to take a non-degree program under the BRN regulation 1429 – the 30 unit option.  This consists of twenty (20) units in nursing and ten (10) units of related science.  REGN 20X, REGN 21X, REGN 33X, and REGN 34X are the required 20 units of nursing plus microbiology and physiology the required 10 units of science.  Students must see the nursing program director if considering this option.
