LPN exam

  1. Hi everyone,
    I asked this question in the CO nursing section already but have decided to cast my net a little wider hoping to get an answer to my question.
    I'm in a BSN program at the moment and have completed my first year. I want to take the LPN exam but was told at the beginning of my BSN program that I couldn't because the program wasn't set up like this. The school said that I had to be in a one and one program in order to first take the LPN exam, then later the RN exam.
    My question is, are there ways around this rule? Can I challenge the exam anyway since I completed the first year of nursing and have had med-surg and other clinical classes? I have tried to contact the CO state nursing board but couldn't get through. I left a message and am awaiting a reply from them. Mean while, being the impatient type.......I was hoping one of my nursing colleagues out there, having pondered, confronted, frustrated over, or hopefully solved this problem and has some good or bad news for me pertaining to my dilemma. Thanks ahead of time for any info regarding this topic.
    t an answer to my question.
