San Joaquin Delta College (SJDC) LVN-to-RN Apprenticeship Application Information



In 2015, Local 1000 sought grant funding for a new type of apprenticeship program to provide our Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) the education and on-the-job training to become Registered Nurses (RNs).   We submitted an application for a $1 million California Apprenticeship Initiative – New and Innovative Grant (CAI Grant) to train up to 50 correctional LVNs working at the California Health Care Facility and neighboring institutions.  Our application was highly ranked, and the program was awarded grant funding! We have since been working with San Joaquin Delta College and California Correctional Health Care Services to administer this program – the very first LVN to RN civil service apprenticeship.

We look forward to potentially opening another application period for this program in 2020!
