    No. Content in RN schools is much different, and you can't learn it with experience. It is not something you can just catch up in years of being LPN.

    Nope. You can't do it. A long time ago, LPN's used to, if they had a physician who was willing to say they had the experience to do so. Now, no one can. RN is tons different from LPN. I know, I just graduated with my BSN....after being an LPN for 8 years.
