St Pauls LPN challenge

  1. Hi!
    I know back when St Pauls was St Vincents they allowed LPNs to challenge certain sequences of the program. I'm wondering if anyone knows if St Pauls also allows this? Their website leaves a lot, if not all, questions unanswered. I know they're not very good about getting back to people (from experience).

    I believe they still do. I know at one point, after it became St Pauls, they did. At this point, anything is possible though. I would contact the admissions rep to find out for sure. If he/she does not have the answer, ask him whom you can speak to to get the answer.

    Also, keep in mind that this is not an easy exam. It is essentially the equivalent of the Fundamentals final exam. So depending on what your experience is as an LPN (and how long you have been out of school) it may be a challenge (hence the name ). I would definitley not advise going in cold.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I'm actually currently enrolled in LPN school and am graduating in June so I'm not too worried about the information not being fresh in my brain. I'm hoping to not have to take any time off from school and bridge right away, some schools allow this but some make you wait a period of time.
