You're currently in an RN program, but don't have clinicals? If you're in pre-requs at this point (before the core program), I'd suggest you become a CNA at this time, so you can work in a hospital while studying for your RN. Going through the LPN program at the same time as the RN just doesn't make sense to me...IF you could get into the second program, dual clinical work is NOT what you want. They are two different programs, with different focuses and scopes of practice. Please reassess, and consider working as an aide instead.

Once you have completed a number of nursing courses in the RN Program, you will be eligible to take the NCLEX-PN. In a community college, normally it is the 3rd semester. I hope this will help you.

Good luck!!!!

Actually, this is no longer the case, as New York has changed the eligibility requirements for taking the PN exam. While at one time an RN student could sit for NCLEX-PN after two semesters, then three, this is no longer allowed. The thinking is that the OB-PEDS components, required to be covered for PN exam, are frequently not covered until the fourth semester of ADN program, and sometimes later in longer programs.

To sit for NCLEX-PN, you have to either have graduated from accredited LPN program, OR graduated from accredited RN program.

Nice to know, and thanks for telling me.

Why not just get a position as a CNA at a local hospital if you want more experience? (most of them run the classes for you to become certified, i believe). I don't see the logic in going for an LPN at the same time as going for an RN?????
