A Step-by-Step Guide to the Application Process

Thank you for your interest in the Hartnell College LVN-to-RN Placement program.  The program is impacted, meaning that far more qualified students apply than can be accepted.  Before applying, please be aware that classroom and some clinical courses are taught using face-to-face, hybrid, and online formats.  Clinical courses occur throughout Monterey County and are scheduled seven days per week and 24-hours each day.  Clinical class times, dates, and places are subject to change based on unanticipated circumstances.  

Your success is important to us.  Please consider your level of preparedness before committing to an education in registered nursing.  Research indicates that successful Hartnell nursing students work less than 16 hours per week and have an extended support system of family and friends.  Because of intricacies and rigor of the registered nursing program, we cannot accommodate your employment or family responsibilities.

We ask that you review our Nursing and Health Sciences Student Handbook and Policy and Procedure Manual. Become familiar with our mission, vision, values, and philosophy before you apply.  Please be sure that Hartnell College is a good match for you.
