LPN while in BSN program

  1. I am starting the 5th semester of the BSN program at NMSU this fall. I am hoping to attempt to take the LP NCLEX when I am eligible while still finishing school so that I can work and make some more money than I would as a CNA and have that experience. Is it possible to do that in New Mexico? Has anyone on here done that? Will I have the classes I need done by the end of my junior year? I was told by some people that it will actually make it harder for me to get a job once I do graduate and pass the NCLEX and apply for jobs with my BSN and I have heard that it will actually help me get a job after graduation. Any information or advice about this would be greatly appreciated!
