LPN exam for RN students?

  1. One of my instructors mentioned to us a while ago that at a certain point through the RN program we are eligible to write the LPN exam, but I don't remember how far into the program it is or which instructor told us. Does anyone know or know where I could find out? BTW I'm in BC, Canada.

    I haven't heard about being able to challenge the LPN exam, but I was wondering why you would need to when you can work as an undergraduate. I worked in B.C. between 2nd and 3rd years and got paid almost 20/hr, which I think is more than an LPN makes, and it was great experience.

    If you contact the college of LPN's in Burnaby,BC they will give you information. The do not have a challenge exam for RN students and you have to complete your 2nd year of the RN program and submit an application to be considered to write.
