    No sense in keeping it when you have your license. Let it expire. I did.

    Let it expire. The LVN license allows you to do all that a CNA can do plus more. No need to pay more fees.

    I think you can no longer be a CNA once you've become a LPN. No action is needed on your part regarding you cna cert because it is now useless. Funny you should ask that, coz as soon as I passed my boards, the thought of my cna cert never entered my mind again.

    You can continue to be a CNA, in most states, if you wish. I let mine expire.

    Funny You Ask My Cna License Is Expiring In A Month, When You Get Your Lpn Your Cna License Goes No Where, Unless You Let It Expire Which I Will Be Doing. Your Pn/vn License Expires When You Get Your Rn.
