Riverside City College (RCC) LVN-to-RN Apprenticeship Program Information


We are excited to announce yet another application period for the RCC LVN to RN Apprenticeship program with a cohort start date of February 2024!   This program is an ongoing partnership between SEIU Local 1000, CCHCS, and RCC to provide workforce development opportunities to LVNs in regions of Southern California.  SEIU Local 1000’s research efforts have resulted in additional High Road Training Partnership grant funding to continue this program, which will also be supplemented by SEIU HCAP funding support.  

Our contract language provides partial time off work without loss of pay (“20/20 time”) for apprentices to participate in classes and clinicals. Additionally, the grant funding covers many of the costs associated with participation in this apprenticeship, including overnight accommodation for those remote to the Riverside area, removing the financial burden many working learners face when returning to school. The program lasts approximately one year.

The list of participating institutions is below:

California Correctional Institution
California Institution for Men
California Institution for Women
California Rehabilitation Center
California State Prison – Los Angeles County
Calipatria State Prison
Centinela State Prison
Ironwood State Prison
North Kern State Prison
Kern Valley State Prison
Richard J. Donovan Prison
Wasco State Prison
