    Per the LVN website, the things that are needed for Method #3 are (source):

    1) Official transcripts
    2) Record of Nursing Experience
    3) Employment Verification
    4) Proof of 54 Theory Hours of Pharmacology

    All forms are listed on their website.

    But I wouldn't need the Employment Verification filled out anymore since i'm challenging the exam based on my educational background not employment experience, yes?

    Per the website,

    "Applicants who have acquired additional formal nursing education from an approved vocational nursing, practical nursing or registered nursing program may submit official transcripts for evaluation for possible credit in lieu of paid bedside nursing experience. The transcripts must be submitted to the Board directly from the school where the courses were taken and must show theory and clinical hours completed, as well as the grades for each course. Applicants must achieve a C or better in the course in order to be given equivalency credit for the course. Credit will only be granted for those courses taken in approved vocational nursing, practical nursing, psychiatric technician or registered nursing programs."



    What I am reading is that the education may be credited "in lieu of paid bedside nursing experience." As to how many credits you would receive is up to the Board.
