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

Posted

i was considering attending:

abington memorial hospital's dixon school of nursing

danville regional medical center, school of health professions: nursing program

riverside health system, riverside school of health careers: school of professional nursing

Meriwhen, ASN, BSN, RN

Specializes in Psych ICU, addictions.

Someone once mentioned to me that you can not sit for the NCLEX-PN in VA unless you graduated from a LPN/LVN program. I don't know if that's true or not...

Your best bet is to contact the VA BON directly and ask.

Pixie.RN, MSN, RN, EMT-P

Specializes in EMS, ED, Trauma, CNE, CEN, CPEN, TCRN. Has 12 years experience.

I agree with Meriwhen -- I don't think so. The application only has a space where applicants can fill out their program name and graduation date. But yeah, contacting the BON would be good:

The "licensure by exam" contact for LPN and RN should be able to help you. Good luck!
