Presently, the demand for nurses continues to grow faster than most other fields in healthcare as our population continues to age with many chronic diseases and compromised health challenges that requires the skills and specialization of the licensed vocational nurse. A recent study issued by the California Institute for Nursing & Health Care (CINHC) forecasts that there will be a shortage of 116,000 nurses by 2020. Although the immediate past recession affected many industries and field of practice, statistics continues to favor healthcare as one of the leading industries that have long term job sustenance in the whole nation.
At BAHU, the student who must have had a paid clinical job experience of 45-51 months is equipped and empowered by our top nurse educators in about six to seven months with the required skills, under section 2873 of the Vocational Nursing Practice Act and Section 2516 (B) of the California Code of Regulations. This Equivalency Method requires each candidate requesting to take advantage of the program at BAHU to provide documentations or evidence of a minimum of 51 months of paid general duty inpatient bedside nursing experience which must be verified by the Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technician (BVNPT) in the state of California.
The BAHU CNA-LVN program is structured to be completed in 8 weeks, designed to empower the qualified candidates to challenge the Licensed Vocational Nursing licensure in the state of California. This course is currently offered only online.
