LPN Testing after one year of RN school...Register Today!
- by Student1683 May 2, '12I was informed that I could sit for the LPN boards after level 2 (halfway through nursing school) by a friend. Then just the other day I was told by an instructor that I am not able to sit for the boards until after level 3 (3rd semester). I am hoping that my instructor is incorrect and that I can take it now. Any one have that info or know where I can find it out? thanks!

It doesn't matter what your instructor says, it is what the requirements are from the BON to sit for your NCLEX-PN. See this link http://www.ok.gov/nursing/nclex7.pdf, it is specifically for those who wish to sit for the NCLEX PN based on "equivalency", and it states directly in this application in the link that "ONE YEAR OF AN ACCREDITED RN PROGRAM". The only difference is you have to apply for equivalency first and then apply to take the exam. I did it, totally worth it.
