Applications Now Being Accepted for LVN-to-RN Apprentices at Delta College
SEIU Local 1000, in partnership with CCHCS and San Joaquin Delta College, is recruiting for new applicants to the LVN-to-RN Apprentice Program, with classes planned to begin in 2021. LVNs attending the program retain their permanent positions while gaining the requisite skills and competencies to become an RN through a combination of classroom theory, clinical experience, and on-the-job training.
Participation in this apprenticeship program is presently reserved for LVNs working at California Health Care Facility (CHCF), Deuel Vocational Institution (DVI), Mule Creek State Prison (MCSP), and Sierra Conservation Center (SCC).
Our contract language provides partial time off work without loss of pay (“20/20 time”) for apprentices to participate in classes and clinicals.
Additionally, funding from SEIU HCAP covers most of the costs associated with participation in this apprenticeship program. This removes the financial burden many working learners face when returning to school.
Applications for the next cohort are due to CCHCS by 5:00 p.m. on October 16, 2020. Click here for more information about the program and to download an application.
