My LVN license expired 21 years ago. I have spent the past 21 years raising my children. I now desperately want to gain my license once again. I recieved my license in Michigan and moved to California.
I realize that I must retake the NCLEX-PN in CA.
I have never had a license in CA. I have been studying many review books for NCLEX-PN. However I was wondering if there are any worthwhile refresher courses in or near the central valley of CA that may help me.
My questions are the following:
Will CA allow me to take the NCLEX after 21 years of not having a license, and being out of nursing school even longer?
Do you know of a quality refresher course for LVN's in or near the Central Valley of CA?
Am I wasteing my time studying? Will BON allow someone like me to even sit for the NCLEX-PN?
I am willing to take an online course as well, do you know of any?
So far I have only found a NCLEX-PN review course in Sacramento. Will that be enough to get me though the test (with self study of books at home)?
I plan to be a hospice home nurse if/when I pass the NCLEX
Thank you tons for all your help!!!
