The application policy and procedures are the same as for the generic RN student. Please see http://www.evc.edu/nursing/enrollment_procedure.htm for the requirements.
From October 1st to October 31st, you can go to https://evcnursing.wufoo.com/forms/evergreen-valley-college-nursing-application/ to apply to the Nursing Program. You cannot apply for the LVN to RN Bridge Program unless you currently have your LVN license at the time of your application. You will be asked in November for a copy of your LVN License via email. The application will also ask you if you wish to apply for both the generic RN Program as well as the LVN to RN Program. You can mark yes or no. If you mark yes, this will give you two possible avenues to get into the RN Program.
What to expect after you apply to the RN Program:
- After you apply to the LVN program in October, you will be given study material via email in November for the N001 Fundamentals of Nursing Challenge Exam, you will have approximately one month to study for this exam (this test typically occurs in mid-December). This is material that you would have already covered as an LVN.
- After you complete the computerized exam, you will get your results in a timely fashion. You will be notified if you passed or failed the exam by email. If you pass, you will go to the next step (see below) if you fail, you will have to wait until the next application period to reapply to the program.
- Once you pass the Challenge Exam, you will be asked to take the TEAS test (see http://www.evc.edu/nursing/teas.htm). This usually will occur in January through March.
- If you pass the TEAS test, you will go to the next step, if you don’t pass the TEAS test, you will have to wait until the next application period to reapply to the program.
- If you pass the TEAS test, you will take N005 Role Transition course during the summer, traditionally this occurs in the month of June. If you are successful in this course, you will then be approved to begin the LVN to RN Bridge Program in the fall semester (typically our LVN students enter into the 2nd or 3rd semester dependent on where we have space availability) if there is space available. If there are more students than spaces available, we will then go to random selection and the students who are not chosen will go on a waiting list for the spring.
