Carrington's Nursing Bridge Program

Nursing Bridge/LVN to ADN

Nursing has many different levels ranging from certificates to master’s degrees or even PhDs. This means it’s always an option to return to school and advance your degree. One program designed for just that is our LVN to ADNprogram in Sacramento. This program is designed for licensed vocational nurses who want to gain an Associate Degree in Nursing. The LVN to ADN program can be completed in as few as eight months.

Practical Nursing / Vocational Nursing

There are multiple levels of nursing careers, but for those looking to help patients and enter the workforce quickly, vocational nursing is an option. Licensed practical nurses (LPNs), or licensed vocational nurses (LVNs) hold an entry-level nursing career that takes less time than registered nursing. In California, this career is called licensed vocational nursing. LVNs provide basic patient care under the supervision of RNs and doctors. Carrington’s Vocational Nursing program takes as few as 12 months.
