Students may also meet the California Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians (BVNPT) requirements. These students will be eligible to register and take the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-VN). Students are required to pass the NCLEX-VN examination in order to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN).
