So I passed my second semester, but I can't be a LPN

  1. 0 Is there any way to get the mother and baby lessons done during the summer somewhere so I could be eligible to take the NCLEX-PN in Oklahoma? My school doesn't teach it until next semester.

    Wait until next semester.If that is the school you are enrolled at then you will have to wait.

    Why are you trying to rush things? It sounds like you only have one semester left

    nahh, just want to make some money. Tired of being poor. I just figured there might be some place to get it done during the summer? Usually when there is a need it exists?

    If you are enrolled in that school you will have to follow their program. You can't just go somewhere else and take the other subjects. You will just have to wait like everyone else.

    The pp is right. Once you start a nursing program you are committed to the end. If you want to take the class somewhere else then you will also need to retake your other nursing classes at the new school. No thanks

    I know thats not completely true. What if u move or something? I'd love to start my next semester tomorrow though and get this over with. Maybe the only way would be to transfer to another school completely?

    If you move then you start from scratch...schools do not accept other schools nursing classes.

    Your non-nursing classes like A&P or nutrition might transfer but schools typically do not accept nursing credits from other schools.

    You should check with the board of nursing. In some states they won't allow you to test for the PN while doing RN, since your taught things for RN (assessing, treatments, and such), and the board may see them as two different entities. You can usually test for CNA, but LPN varies by BON.

    My state does allow it after 1 year, but only if you have completed maternal and pediatric. And yes I can transfer to another nursing school. Many Allow this. I can't find any that start in the summer thouugh.

    most of the schools you will find that have summer peds and OB are accelerated programs, and those schools don't take transfers. Most programs will only offer spring/fall classes, and then maybe some other non clinical classes for summer. As far as transferring goes, very few nursing schools take transfer schools because they don't have a fair assessment of how you did there compared to their school as well as what you learned. I would suggest if you want to work, just do the CNA and then get a job as a CNA. You wont make as much as an LPN, but you also wont have to transfer, pay fees to do so, and deal with the hassle. Either way, you wont be able to start as an LPN till mid fall (with summer peds/ob classes and state board testing and such), where as CNA you can get done in a month or so.

    $9hr as a cna now. $20hr as a lpn. That's why I was asking. Only other option is nurse extern. I'm not sure what that pays though.
