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

The application period for this program is currently closed. Please stay tuned for upcoming opportunities! If you have further questions, please email grow@seiu1000.org.

We are excited to announce yet another application period for the RCC LVN to RN Apprenticeship program with a cohort start date of August 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 new funding through the High Road Training Partnership grant program provided by the California Workforce Development Board (CWDB).

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
Kern Valley State Prison
North Kern State Prison
Richard J. Donovan Prison
Wasco State Prison

Information Session 

An information session will be held virtually on Microsoft Teams Friday, April 12, 2024 from 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM.  Representatives from Local 1000, CCHCS, RCC and SJDC will be in attendance to answer questions about the program.  Details are below:
