Can u take LVN test while in nursing school?

  1. Hello,
    I live in California and was wondering if there is some time while enrolled in the RN program at a nursing school can you take the LVN test?

    I am starting my second semester and we take pharmacology 1 and 2 in 1st and second semester along with skills and nursings courses. This is a four semester program...Thanks!

    You need to talk to your school's administrator as to when you can sit for your LVN. In Ohio, the school notifies the BON of eligibility.

    I think it depends on how your school sets up there program, like most places i think you have to have maternal/child complete and Med surge complete before you can sit for the NCLEX-PN
