LVN to RN Apprenticeship
LVN-to-RN Apprenticeship Program
Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN) to Registered Nursing (RN) Apprenticeship
In 2017, Local 1000 worked to launch the very first LVN-to-RN civil service apprenticeship program in the country, offering upward mobility to Unit 20 healthcare workers at California Correctional Health Care Services (CCHCS). Since then, we have continued to grow our program by partnering with San Joaquin Delta College, Sacramento City College, and Riverside City College. With the support of grant funding secured by Local 1000’s research department along with supplemental funding from SEIU HCAP, Local 1000 has registered over 75 apprentices in these apprenticeships. The majority of the apprentices are now working as Registered Nurses at CCHCS.
