    You can take the NCLEX PN if you have equivalent education..Here is the website that has the information..Just scroll down until you see equivalent education from the link..They have to reveiw your transcripst to approve the taking of NCLEX PN..Here is the link and scroll down:

    http://www.bvnpt.ca.gov/method3.htm#PHARM

    The link states:

    EQUIVALENT EDUCATION

    Applicants who have acquired additional formal nursing education from an approved/accredited vocational nursing, practical nursing or registered nursing program may submit official transcripts for evaluation for possible credit in lieu of paid bedside nursing experience. The transcripts must be submitted to the Board directly from the school where the courses were taken and must show theory and clinical hours completed, as well as the grades for each course. Applicants must achieve a C or better in the course in order to be given equivalency credit for the course. Education credit will only be granted for those courses taken in approved/accredited vocational nursing, practical nursing or registered nursing programs.

    You must meet the course requirements to be able to sit for the NCLEX-PN exam. You only challenge it if you were a medic in the miliatary and did nto attend nursing school. And that is only for Virginia and CA.

    There is no such thing as "challenging" the exam in any other case than that.

    You will need to submit your credentials to the office that handled LVN licenses and let them make a determination. Only they can do that. Curriculums vary among schools, it will depend on what you did and when.
