We are pleased you have accepted our invitation to learn more about the pharmacology course we are offering to Certified Nursing Assistants/ Medical Assistant/ Nursing Assistant seeking licensure as vocational nurses in California based upon equivalent experience and/or education. The California Board of Vocational Nursing (LVN Board) refers to this approach to licensing as “Method 3: Qualification Based on Equivalent Education and/or Experience Authority per section 2873 of the Vocational Nursing Practice Act and section 2516(b) of the California Code of Regulations.” What Method 3 does is recognize that experience gained as a CNA/MA/Nurse Assistant can be the equivalent to formal education.
Although there may be variants in experience acceptable to the Board, according to regulation, you must have 51 months of “paid general duty inpatient bedside nursing experience” consisting of the following: • 48 months medical/surgical nursing • 6 weeks maternity or genitourinary nursing • 6 weeks pediatric nursing In addition, the applicant must also complete a 54 hour course of instruction in pharmacology that covers the following areas: • Knowledge of commonly used drugs and their action • Computation of dosages • Preparation of medications • Principles of administration
So that you will have a better understanding of Method 3, the following information, as it appears in the LVN Board’s website(www.bvnpt.ca.gov), is provided: Certified Nursing Assistant to License Vocational Nursing(Method 3)
