    RN/BSN programs have more units/courses/subjects/hours than LVN/LPN programs. So generally, you can take NCLEX-PN even though you finished an RN/BSN program. But why would you do that if all the documentary requirements for state licensure, whether RN or LVN/LPN, are the same.

    (And I assume you are an international nurse seeking licensure in the US.)
    You still need to go through CGFNS (CES) in most states, still need to prove English language proficiency, etc. The main differences are the the number of required units/hour of courses taken, and the type of exam.

    Suggest you brush up on your written English because text speak is banned from the website and doesn't present a professional image.

    But you have to understand the LPN designations IS NOT a a consolation prize for those unable to complete RN registration papers.

    the thing is, if you desire to be an RN in the future, you still need to meet those deficiencies. What exactly is that problem in your clinical cases? And did you ask CA BRN if you can do something about it.

    California, I believe, does their own assessment.

    ok. After reading some other threads that you started, I kind of have an idea now what's going on.

    If you live in California (and all your family, relatives) and you don't want to move elsewhere, then if you're really ineligible from gaining licensure because of your deficiency, then go ahead and take the LVN route if that's what it takes for you to work as a nurse.

    But if you're open about relocating, then try other states as an RN where you have some friends or family that could help you settle in. Most states require CES from CGFNS and I haven't heard of anyone being denied licensure by other states because of deficiencies on courses taken in the Philippines.
