    I'm an undergraduate BSN student from the Philippines, I was in my 3rd year college when i left the country. I am now residing in Florida.

    Is it possible for an undergraduate BSN student to just challenge the LPN licensure exam?
    What are the requirements?
    Does anybody know anything about this?

    Guys, please help.


    Im also from Florida and had my grades evaluated at this office I paid $185 and this was 2 yrs ago.

    I am also a college graduate I had a computer science degree gradutated from Philippines. I am planning to study in Florida 2 yrs ago but I wasnt able to enroll becoz of the residency requirement to pay a cheaper tuition fee.So i waited but I just decided to study CNA in a small school AGUILAS INTL in TAMPA.I got my CNA license in FL. BUt I recently enrolled here in the Philippines for my 2nd degree to pursue BSN or 4 yrs in Nursing Im on my 1 st year now and need some few pre-req.Still it will take me 4 yrs before I can graduate but I am also planning to go back to the US after 2 yrs planning to challenge the BOARD just like your PLAN to be an LPN coz being away from my husabnd becoz of my studies is very tough for both of us.
