    No, I don't believe that it is a requirement. I got my LPN 3 years ago, and it wasn't. I do know that the program I applied to had a "points system" that helped them select their students, and having your CNA did provide extra points for an advantage, but it most definetly wasn't a requirement!
    Hope this helps!
