Notice – Updated 1/10/19

The Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians extends its sympathy and support in this stressful time to students impacted by the closure of Brightwood Colleges. We have been working with our partner agencies in California’s Department of Consumer Affairs to develop an assistance plan for the future licensed vocational nurses who were studying at Brightwood campuses in California.

Brightwood College students have options. California’s Office of Student Assistance and Relief is conducting workshops, and reaching out to students individually to offer support. For more information, including the schedule for those workshops, please visit:

If you are in your final term at one of the Brightwood campuses and have been impacted by the closure, BVNPT will waive the $250 application fee for those choosing to apply for Method 3 Equivalency. For information and instructions see Method 3

You must apply online, and submit the application on or before February 28, 2019. Please attach a signed note to your application affirming that you were displaced from a Brightwood program.
