Getting LPN license while in the RN program


Does anyone know if IL allows you to sit for the PN exam after your first year in the RN program?

Contact the Board. Alternatively contact your program. But be aware that some schools refuse to cooperate with this process even if it is allowed in your state.

Depends on the school. I would ask your school/program director. On the LPN approved school list (it's on the application... just google it), see if you're school is on the list of approved LPN schools. I know that some schools that have RN programs are removing it completely from their curriculum and are no longer becoming available.
