I've got a question and would love some help with it. =)
- 0Nov 21, '11 by justme12Hey Everyone,
I am in my first semester of Nursing school, and I was just wondering if you could take the NCLEX-PN once you get to a certain point? That way I could work as an LPN while finishing school. I know at my school that the LPN program, which is 3 semesters, equals the first 2 of the RN program. So I was just wondering if you could do that. If anyone knows please get back to me because I would really love to find out!

I worked with a couple new grad LPNs that then completed their ADN RN degree the following year. I do not know if they do that anymore.

After the third semester, we could apply to test for our LPN license. However, it wasn't encouraged or advised by our instructors because orienting/working as an LPN during our final semester would more than likely be overwhelming.
