Hello everyone!

Does anyone know how to challenge the board for the LPN nclex exam in the state of Colorado? My school is a private college and does not offer the option of taking the lpn board exam for the BSN program. I was in a BSN program and i failed one of my classes in my 5th quarter of the BSN program (which takes 7 quarters to complete), and was informed to come apply for readmission in a year time. I think i have the clinical knowledge and several years of experience in health care field which will be advantage for me to sit for the LPN nclex board exam. Please if anyone have any idea of how to go about challenging the board, i'd appreciate your input. Thanks in advance.

Cause you just pass medicine as a lvn it doesn't take a genius to do that a rn on the other hand is more extensive, a lvn is like a middle man between cna and rn, that's what california thinks too so they offer the challenge cna's learn all that paid experience on the job for 51 months so why not take the pharmacology class and do it and then the n c l e x good luck it's just a lot of people are hating cause they took the long expensive route and then heard about this in california

Do you have any firsthand experience to support your assertions? Did you start out as a CNA, then transition to the LVN role before earning an RN license? Or are you simply formulating a suboptimal opinion based on what you see at the workplace?

I am an RN with a BSN degree who once worked as an LVN for several years. LVNs are not mindless automatons who just pass medications. LVNs need to know the pharmacology behind those medications and how they interact in the body.

I know it does not take a genius to pass medications, but if you really feel that way, I invite you to allow an unlicensed medication aide with a GED and no pharmacology education to administer medications to you and your loved ones.

Go to bvnpt.ca method #3 download the application
There's no need for me to download the application, although I'm appreciative of the astoundingly thoughtful suggestion. I'm the individual who originally wrote this article three years ago, so I'm well-versed about the process of challenging the boards to become an LVN in the state of California.

Weren't you one of the people who had enrolled in one of these long, expensive LVN programs several years ago?

Wait LVN is a CNA who can just pass medication, that should be here in this state ha. We have med and IV classes for certain positions, but not sure if for CNAs. Such as in the group home take a 24 hour medication class and test. We have two one for adults and children...man that be awesome if our state did that.

Wow classy. I was an LVN before I was an RN. I assure you the brunt of my education occurred in my LVN program. I frequently had to make tough decisions in the variety of settings I worked in. Assessment skills are very much still an important part of the job.

I believe this option was intended for military health workers who had the experience but not the "degree." I've worked with several in the past who challenged after their many years in Air Force/ army and I'd trust them with my life over many others.
