    There is no way of getting around the Hobet test for Penn Valley's Practical Nursing Program. I went to Penn Valley's LPN Nursing program and it is mandatory that you take the entrance test. You got to pass it to get into the LPN program. There are no shortcuts in nursing although there are alot of side street schools out there that offer Nursing Programs and somehow people are able to enter the Nursing program without taking the entrance test but they cost a lot of money to go to and you don't have the Nursing Skills that you are suppose to have, which makes and incompetent nurse.

    I am currently working on steps to get into Penn valley for the partical nursing program. I just want to know if you would have to take the pre requisite and whatever you fail on the compass test at the same time??

    Yes, for example if you take the compass test and you are placed in foundational math which is called Math 20 at Penn Valley. You would then need to complete Math 20, Intermediate Math and College Algebra before applying for the program.
