Difference between the LPN and RN Nclex Exam

  1. 0
    Does anyone know what the differences are between the Nclex~LPN and the Nclex~RN? I remember taking the Nclex~Lpn exam a few years ago, and I really didn't think it was all that bad. The hardest part was just trying to relax so I could think straight and understand the questions. I think the biggest part is HOW to take the test, not so much remembering all the knowledge that is crammed in your brain. Please share your ideas!

    its the level of attained educ.
    associate degree/ bachelor degree holder can take NCLEX-RN or NCLEX-LPN.

    taking up LVN course can take NCLEX-LPN but not NCLEX-RN.

    Here's an overview of nursing hierarchy.

    RN > LPN > CNA. :O

    Well, I took the LPN years ago, so maybe it's changed. I then took the RN 4 yrs later. The LPN wasn't as indepth as the RN test was. I don't remember it being as difficult, whereas the RN test was a bit more indepth. Both were given over 2 days back then.
