    No you cannot work as an LPN unless licensed as same. Moved to nursing career advice forum as nothing to do with studying/preparing for NCLEX>

    You must apply,take and pass NCLEX-PN for you to get an LVN license and to work as well.

    But being a CNA/HHA requires certification by the the State, after a prescribed official course of study.

    While you cannot work as an LPN or CNA without licensure/cerification, you CAN work as a Home Health Aide through a Home Health agency. At least here in Ohio you can do this without certification.
    Good luck!
