Can one challenge the NCLEX-PN partway through a RN program in NJ?

Posted

I was thinking of attending one of the many hospital diploma based programs in NJ if that helps.

Thanks much.

Easy way to find out is by contacting NJ's BON. Do know that NYS ended the practice of allowing RN student nurses to challenge the PN boards about a year or so ago. Reason given was that RN students had not covered required PN courses (IIRC geriatrics), until later in their programs.

I agree, best way is to check the NJ BON. However, I have heard through the grapevine that NJ also does not allow nursing students to sit for the NCLEX-PN if you are halfway through your classes. :down:
