Thank you so much for your interest in the Nursing Program at Solano Community College (SCC) and its LVN to RN Advanced Placement program.

SCC no longer has a guaranteed annual class of LVN to RN Advanced Placement students; rather, students are now admitted on a space-available basis into the Registered Nursing program. For this reason, it is very unpredictable estimating how long it may take for a space to become available for students wishing to enter the SCC Nursing Program in this way. The average rate of getting an available space in the program over the last five years has been less than 20%. If you continue to wish to enter an Advanced Placement LVN to RN program, we suggest you look for a college that has a dedicated LVN to RN cohort admitted annually or semi-annually.

LVNs are now able to apply directly to our generic Associates Degree in Nursing (ADN) program where the chances of actual matriculation during the first year of application are more than three times greater than the LVN to RN pathway. If you choose to apply this way you would start as a first semester nursing student with the rest of the class without any advanced placement granted.

The generic ADN program class is drawn through a computerized lottery system. Historically, applicants have had a 65% or better chance of being accepted their first application year with the lottery, with the chances improving in succeeding application years. More information about the application process and the SCC ADN program can be found on, go to A-Z index and find Nursing under N.

Accepted students will be determined through a randomized lottery and will be cleared to register for the course, which begins June 13, 2022. This course runs from June 13, 2022 through August 14, 2022, on variable days as follows:
