One of the fastest routes to licensure as a registered nurse (RN) is an associate’s degree program. A traditional ADN curriculum requires two years of fulltime study and prepares graduates to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Many of California’s approved ADN schools also offer an advanced placement option for licensed vocational nurses (LVNs), often called an LVN-to-RN bridge program. Indeed, several schools like Allan Hancock College and College of the Siskiyous offer only the LVN-to-RN track.

A traditional ADN student must complete approximately 60 credit hours on a semester system, or 90 credit hours on a quarter system, in order to graduate. Several California schools offer afternoon or evening classes to accommodate students with full- or part-time work schedules. While ADN students typically enter the workforce upon graduation, many will later use the ADN program as a stepping stone to a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree. Numerous schools offer an RN-to-BSN program tailored to ADN graduates, and most deliver the content entirely online.

Newly licensed California RNs can expect an excellent job outlook and competitive salaries. The state’s registered nurses earn an average annual salary of $120,560 according to recent data (May 2020) from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Indeed, this is the highest average RN salary in the entire country. Registered nurse employment is projected to grow by 7% over the next decade, faster than the average for all occupations. Major California healthcare networks like Kaiser Permanente, Sutter Health, Cedars-Sinai Health System, and Verity Health System are frequently hiring new nurses, both to meet growing demand and to replace retiring RNs.

To help aspiring nurses evaluate their options, the research team at Nursing Schools Almanac has compiled an extensive database of student performance on the NCLEX-RN licensure exam. We analyzed this data over a lengthy period of time -- the past decade when possible -- to calculate each program’s NCLEX pass rate among first-time test-takers. We then used this metric to rank California’s ADN programs, from the strongest NCLEX-RN performance (Chabot College) to the weakest (East Los Angeles College). You can find the detailed results of our analysis below.
