As an LPN you take the NCLEX but do you have to take it again when you get ur ADN of BSN, and since you are an lpn are you considered a "nurse" or are you just another notch up the ladder of being a CNA

Oh, yes, you get to take the NCLEX-RN!

LPN are nurses. But depending on the nurse practice act of your state, their roles may be different from the RN though. For example, LPNs might not be able to triage or assess a patient on a cardiac monitor.

An LPN is a nurse. It stands for Licensed Practical Nurse.

If you become an LPN and then become an RN-ADN you will have to take another nclex at the RN level. If you go on again to get your BSN you will not need to take the nclex again. There is only one test at the RN level.

The next set of tests are not part of nclex and are at the Master's level, such as NP, CRNA etc.
