CNA to LVN

  1. I am going to be starting a CNA program soon, but had a few questions regarding CNA to an LVN???

    -Are there any pre-requisites needed to go for my LVN once I'm a CNA? For example, do I need all the sciences that I once took before? Such as physio, micro, anatomy (etc.) I know all schools are different, but I was just curious because I don't want to have to re-take all these classes again =/

    Thank you for your time and input.

    At some community colleges you might have to take pre-reqs like the A&P's before you are able to start the program. Some CC's have the sciences included in the program. For example: the first semester you'd take a nursing course along with a&p 1. Second semester you take a couple of nursing courses along with a&p 2.

    Private schools is a different story. Many of them include a&p into the program. So in theory, you'd re-take a&p again, but it would probably easy for you if you've had it before.

    If I were to go for an LVN, can Ilearn it online to take the course?
