How to transfer my Alaska LPN license to CA license
- 0Oct 16, '12 by anlauderHow do I go about transferring my Alaska licensure to the California State board of nursing? Or is there a way I could see if my Alaska LPN license is accepted as an RN license?
- 4Oct 16, '12 by Meriwhen Senior ModeratorWith the utmost respect, a LVN (that's what they call LPNs here) is not the same as a RN in California. So I sincerely doubt that you could convert an AK LPN license to a CA RN license. That being said, you could always ask...but I really don't think it will work.
BON for LVNs:
Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians
BON for RNs:
Board of Registered Nursing
Best of luck.
