    Hey can anybody give me some information on challenging the LPN state boards? I'm in my second year of nursing and have completed all my of my prerequisites for nursing. I need to have something to fall back on just in case I don't make it in the RN program. I also believe that it may give me the confidence and take some of the pressure off if I had my license as an LPN.
    Thank you

    I think you would have to contact your state board of nursing as a starting point - but why not just continue with your studies? If you've already completed your prerequisites just go ahead and finish.
    It will not be easy to challenge the LPN nclex (if it's even possible) and since you are in school you will be adding significantly to your academic workload. Why take two NCLEX (PN & RN) if you don't have to - taking one is bad enough. This is a link to a site with info on the PN NCLEX http://caring4you.net/lpnnclex.html I hope this is helpful. Nursing is not easy, but obviously it isn't impossible to enter the field - I made it. Have more confidence in yourself.

    Hi everyone!:spin:

    Does anyone have any information or experience with WHITEGLOVE CARE, STAFFING REMEDIES or UNITED/INTERNATIONAL STAFFING REGISTRY?

    I'm an RN from the Philippines planning on relocating to NY. Any suggestions on good agencies/hospitals in NY that sponsor foreign nurses?

    Thanks!
