Sacramento City College (SCC) LVN-to-RN Apprenticeship Program Information


SEIU Local 1000 continues to offer upward mobility opportunities for our members across the state. In 2018, SEIU Local 1000’s research efforts resulted in another California Apprenticeship Initiative (CAI) grant award. In this Apprenticeship Program, Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN) will gain the requisite Registered Nurse (RN) skills and competencies through a combination of classroom theory, clinical experience, and on-the-job training. LVNs accepted into the apprenticeship receive their full pay while working and gaining the education, requisite skills, and competencies to become an RN!  

SEIU Local 1000, with additional grant funding support provided through SEIU Healthcare Career Advancement Program (HCAP), in partnership with California Correctional Health Care Services (CCHCS) and Sacramento City College (SCC) is excited to announce a fourth cohort for the LVN to RN Apprenticeship Program, which will begin in May 2023.
