SEIU Local 1000’s Research Department successfully secured a
third grant that extended the LVN-to-RN apprenticeship
program to Riverside City College (RCC), therein making our
LVN-to-RN apprenticeship programs statewide offerings. This
program is similar to the San Joaquin Delta College program and
Sacramento City College apprenticeships, but is also intended to
offer education through distance learning. Presently, the
LVN-to-RN apprenticeships are limited to LVNs working at CCHCS,
but we hope to expand in the future.
LVNs admitted to these apprenticeship programs retain their
permanent positions while in the program. LVNs gain the requisite
RN skills and competencies through a combination of classroom
theory, clinical experience, and on-the-job training. This
program prepares individuals to function fully and effectively as
RNs working for CCHCS under the complete care model. Our contract
language provides time off without loss of pay (“20/20 time”) for
apprentices to participate in classes and clinicals. Many of the
costs associated with participation in these apprenticeship
programs are covered by the grant.
Below are some helpful links to provide you with
information for our various LVN-to-RN apprenticeship programs, as
well as information about how to apply.
