    thanks and you brought up that question too..honestly Im also confuse about the LVN application..between method 2 and 3,what is really the difference..
    I don't think it matters weather it's method 2 or 3 because you end up filling up the same form (Record of Nursing Program) and needing the sealed official transcript. Think I'm correct that you don't need to send the 'experience' and 'employment verification' forms.

    What is the postcard which the BVNPT is requiring??

    "H. Postcard (55A-7) Write your name and address on the postcard provided. Make sure to place a postage stamp on the postcard to receive verification that your application was received by the Board.
    (Note: Not applicable for applications downloaded from the internet.)"

    Guys who are applying or planning to apply for LVN, what's the first step you took? It's more complicated compared to the BRN. Just making sure I'm on the right track. Did you guys know how long will it take us if we take our deficiency? I tried contacting some schools but I haven't yet found any that offers only my deficiency. Thanks!

    most of the applicants here are applying for a vn license using method 3 (click for application)

    i am a lvn and the bvnpt is more rigorous than the cabon (i also have my rn license and dealing with them is way easier than the bvnpt). based on the boards website, make sure you have the following before applying for the boards (they generally take 3-4 weeks to process each application).

    method #3: completion of equivalent education and experience.
    • pharmacology - 54 hours
    • paid bedside nursing experience - 51 months
    • verification of skill proficiency.
    forms 55a - 2 & 55a - 3 (pages 1 & 2) must be filled out by your school. you must show that:

    1,530 total hours: theory - *576 hours; clinical - 954 hours
    *includes pharmacology - 54 hours

    if you do not have a ssn, they cannot issue a license.

    You don't need paid bedside experience because all you need is to have the total of clinical and lecture hours mandated by BVNPT. You are using method 3 because you're petitioning for the equivalent education (it's equivalent education OR paid experience... they are not mutually exclusive).

    If you have the hours specified above, and your school can validate that for you, then you are qualified to take the NCLEX- PN exam.

    Just an FYI, you may not qualify for the Method #3 because I believe that's for CNAs with many years experience in all fields of nursing who can take the NCLEX-PN. You may want to contact the BVNPT directly and get clairfication because using method #3 will limit your scope as an LVN. You may not be able to take the IV ceritfication with using Method #3. I'm advising you to contact the board directly. You may be able to apply as a LVN with out using any of the methods. Good Luck
