Challenging the LVN in California

  1. i was just wondering how hard it would be for some one to challenge the lvn in cali?
    ive meant all the requirements and will be finishing the pharmacology class soon but im nervous! ive been working on the med/surg and tele floor at ucsd for 3 years, and due to constant floating i have nicu, imu, icu, er and other various experience on different floors. im a smart person and im getting an a in pharm but i was just wondering before i pay all the fees can i really do this? is it worth trying? what do you all think?

    Are you asking whether or not you can skip through the program and take the NCLEX? I have never heard of someone doing that?

    Yeah I am... in california as long as you have 51 months of paid bedside nursing as a CNA or MA AND a 54 theory hour of Pharmacology you can challenge the NCLEX! I was just wondering how hard people thought it was... What are things that I should know like ethics, laws etc.. is it challengable
