LPN verses LVN classes

  1. 0 Hello all,
    I have a two questions.

    Question #1 I am reading all about LPN verses LVN, but dont really uderstand what the difference is, and if NYS allows them.

    Question #2 I have been an EMT for many years (over 10) in NYS, and am looking too maybe taking one of the above mentioned classes, one that may allow me to use my current education time, and give credit for life experiences. I have heard of LPN programs in NYC that are stripped down bare bones, classes that get you ready to take the state exam.

    If any one can help me, that would be great,
    Thanks

    A LPN and LVN are the same thing, but in CA and TX they are LVN's and everywhere else LPN's.
