I am a nursing student at a school which offers a 3 year BSN program. I am near completion of med/surg and pharmacology and will be entering peds and OB at the end of this month. I would like to find out the requirements to sit for the state of Illinois LPN exam, however, the only information I can find online speaks about LPN programs, and don't specifically state credits and/or classes required that are needed to take the exam.
Junior colleges in the state of Illinois offer their students a chance to sit for the LPN exam after the completion of the first year of their clinical rotation, but how do know if I qualify for this with the specific classes I have taken?
How would I go about doing this and applying for since I don't have an actual degree yet? Everything I read on the State of Illinois websites reference a degree. My school is of no help since they frown upon the students working while in the nursing program, but some of us have families to help support.twocents:
Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated! :heartbeat
