    Does anyone know if you can work as a graduate nurse in WI before you take your boards for LPN? or do you have to take your boards before you can work?

    2banurse I live near Milwaukee. Yes, you can work with a temp. permit. To find out more information check out Wisconsin department of regulation and licensing. Web page- http://drl.wi.gov/index.htm Hope this helps. Me and my friends just graduated dec. 17 and most of them obtained temp. permits. I chose not to. My rationale was that I didn't want a lower wage. Things worked out for me. In your program near the end is more information regarding the board of nursing and related stuff. Good luck. BTW What school are you going to?

    Thank you for the information, that helps a lot. I go to school at WITC in New Richmond. I wasn't going to take the LPN boards, but I have decided to do it and I didn't have any information on it. This is the first year WITC can take their LPN boards after the first year. They changed the whole program, so noone really knew what to do.
