Is It Possible?

  1. Can an RPN student who's completed their first year, go & register to write the PSW certificate exam, without taking the PSW course?

    I heard this does exist, but I can't seem to find information on it?

    It would make sense since RPN's learn in 4 months (first semester) what PSW's learn in their whole program.

    I am in Ontario and here there is no provincial exam per say, you finish your PSW program and get your certificate. I have known RPNs that were hired in a PSW capacity part way through school. it would likely depend on the work place.Some places would perhaps be fine with fact your are a year into the RPN course.
