BS or logical?

    Hello,

    One of my former coworkers challanged the NCLEX-PN due to her years experience working as a certified medical assistant. She challenged and won yet, I thought that it meant by successfully challanging it that she was allowed to sit for the NCLEX-Pn to test and earn license.

    Have you tested and earned license? It might be just a darn technical glitch that they cannot take you do to a lack of a year's worth of license time.

    It sounds like their loss.

    I am still a student and hopefully someone else may have better information.

    For what it's worth, I work at a county hospital and we have several CNA's that hold an LVN liscense but the county "requires graduation from a certified school." I suspect the same holds true for the state prison system. IMHO some who challenge the liscense are knowledgable/very skilled and some are scary.
