Can LPN With 10+ Yrs Exp take RN Boards in CA?

  1. I friend of mine recently said that she heard an LVN/LPN with 10 or more years experience can challenge the RN boards in CA. Is this true? And if so is it for like a separate CA State Board Pool test for that state only? I can't imagine that to be true.

    The RN boards cannot be challenged anywhere in the country.

    California allows only the LVN boards to be challenged. In other words, your friend has acquired some incorrect information.
