Several states like TX, OK, & NJ ( there are others) require LPN candidates to be graduates of practical nursing programs as the BoN feels that an RN program is not sufficient qualification to sit for the NCLEX-PN.

LPN is not a consolation prize for failing to pass the NCLEX-RN multiple times. The exams are similar and if you do not have strong content background or sufficient test taking skills then you will not be successful at the NCLEX-PN either.

I live in Texas and was allowed to take the LVN boards after completing my 3rd semester of an RN program. I took it passed and worked as an LVN my last semester and until I started my new job and passed the RN boards. So you do not have to be a graduate of an LVN program. However I did have to get permission from my dean of nursing and additional paperwork to prove I took the required courses.

The LVN test wasn't anything like the RN test. In my opinion the LVN test consisted of precautions type questions, a few meds but very little, prioritizing. I didn't find it to be difficult at all. I took it after completing my 3rd semester of a BSN program. Good luck
