    It is unlikely that State A would allow one to pursue licensing as an LPN in State A with nursing content from an incomplete degree from a State B program. This is a question best answered by the nursing board in the state where you attended nursing school. And remember, even if allowed by your state, that does not mean that the school will cooperate. Some do not.

    My school allows us to sit for our LPN licensure after we complete 2 semesters I believe.

    You need to check with your state's BON to find out the answer to this question. The program I'm in prepares us to sit for the NCLEX-PN after the 2nd semester is completed. Then, after our 4th semester, we're eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN. Every program is different and the requirements for licensure vary by state. So, check!

    I have no idea why you're asking here. Call the state boards of nursing in the state(s) where you live or want to live, and ask them. They're the only ones that really know.

    That said, I think there's a snowball's chance in hell that you'll be able to do what you want to do.
