Dear Donna,

My daughter is interested in becoming a nurse. Are there any trade schools that you know of that are close to our home in Murrieta, Calif.? Most vocational classes I know of are about a one hour away, without traffic.

Daughter Wants to Be a Nurse

Dear Daughter Wants to Be a Nurse,

If your daughter wants to become a registered nurse, she should be looking for a college-based BSN program. RNs with associate’s degrees are having trouble finding work in today’s very competitive
job market.

Because you use the terms vocational and trade school, I am wondering if she is considering becoming a Licensed Vocational Nurse? If you are looking for an LVN program, here is a list of accredited programs in your state: http://www.bvnpt.ca.gov/education/schools/vn_schools.shtml. If you are looking for RN programs, you can go to the link below and see a list of schools categorized by type of degree: http://www.rn.ca.gov/schools/rnprograms.shtml.

Please be aware that there are some non-accredited schools out there. It is important that your daughter enrolls only in those approved by the California Division of Consumer Affairs boards of nursing, listed on the websites referenced above.

Best wishes,
Donna
